We are proud to welcome authors to the EDCJCC throughout the year. These programs provide our community with a chance to hear from writers about their lives and works, as well as opportunities to think deeply about arts and ideas, about authors and stories, and timely topics.

Thank you to all who attended and participated in the Washington Jewish Literary Festival! This year’s festival line-up included a Local Authors Fair; a discussion on parenting with Rabbi Susan Silverman, Dr. Carla Naumburg, and Marjorie Ingall; an exploration of Maya Benton’s Roman Vishniac Rediscovered; a presentation by author/storyteller Noa Baum from her book A Land Twice Promised; and a performance of the hit public radio series Selected Shorts.

Please stay tuned for future literary-themed programs in the coming months!
