Jewish Book Carnival Headquarters

Welcome to the headquarters of the Jewish Book Carnival, a monthly event where bloggers who blog about Jewish books can meet, read and comment on each others’ posts.

The carnival was started by Heidi Estrin and Marie Cloutier to build community among bloggers and blogs who feature Jewish books. It will run every month on the 15th.

The default location for the Carnival will be here at People of the Books but we encourage you to contact Heidi at if you would like to host the Carnival on your blog.

Feel free to download and save the logo, and use it on your blogposts or sidebar. Please do not link directly to the picture.

The Jewish Book Carnival has a GoodReads page, where we host discussions and more. Whether or not you’re participating, we hope you’ll stop by, join and take part!

Hi there

I would love to be a part of this, and I also would like to offer my book to the group, that was recently translated from Hebrew. Please take a look at: Daughters of Iraq" a Historical Fiction book, based on my family story.

Thanks, Revital
