In which we curate for you some of the best items we’ve discovered lately that address American Jewish Experience (AJE).

  • “What It Means to Grow Up Jewish in Chicago”–according to the Forward‘s Adam Langer.
  • “I didn’t walk into Steampunk Coffee in Natchez, Mississippi, expecting to daven.” How can you resist the opening line to this piece from Rabbi Jeremy Simons?
  • Featured in “The Jewish Traveler” column in the new issue of Hadassah: Philadelphia.

  • And if you are so inclined, check the hashtag #AJLJubilee on Twitter: Fig Tree Books is proud to be part of the activity taking place at the Association of Jewish Libraries conference being held in Silver Spring, Maryland.
