From annual literary festivals and monthly book clubs to the Kass Judaic Library, the Bender JCC believes the literary arts have the power to educate, enlighten, and engage. Explore everything we have to offer book lovers at the Bender JCC.


Our annual festival returns with an astounding array of authors and programs exploring storytelling through words, music and images. Planning is well underway for our exciting, revamped literary series and we are busy assembling an outstanding line up of speakers and programs.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For information on making a donation to the book festival or sponsoring an author event, please contact Marcie Blackman.
