Great Jewish Books Summer Program

A week-long exploration of literature & culture for high school students
at the Yiddish Book Center, Amherst, MA

August 3-10, 2014

The Great Jewish Books Summer Program brings together a select group of rising high school juniors and seniors to read, discuss, argue about, and fall in love with some of the most powerful and enduring works of modern Jewish literature. Participants study with respected literary scholars, meet prominent contemporary authors, and connect with other teens from across the country. One of last year’s participants writes: “I had an amazing time every single day and would go to bed feeling excited for the next day.” And a parent adds: “Our daughter’s experience was off-the-charts wonderful!” So tell the young person you know and love to apply now for summer 2014! (And note: Every admitted participant receives a scholarship for the full cost of tuition, room, board, books, and special events.)

Applications are due March 15, 2014. For more information go to or email
