It is not limited to just books but is open to a wide range of literature including screenplays, journalistic pieces, novels, non-fiction, and performances.

The festival is well-attended each year especially by literature lovers, as well as individuals who are interested to hear from some of the world’s most renowned authors. International writers who have made appearances at previous events include Howard Jacobson, Etgar Keret, Simon Sebag Montefiore, and Tom Segev, among many others.

The event’s objectives are to celebrate Jewish literature, bring the local Jewish community together, create a platform for interaction among readers and writers, and raise awareness of Jewish ideas and culture for the non-Jewish community.

The festival will feature writing workshops, panel discussions, talks, and more. Kosher food, vegetarian and gluten-free meals, and beverages will be available throughout the festival.
