  • Flyer from Writer in Residence
The Jewish Community Alliance of Lancaster (JACL), in conjunction with the Jewish Book Council (JBC), is pleased to present Writers  in Residences* (*theirs and ours).
  • Poster of Writers in Residence

From September 2020 through April 2021, on the second Sunday (7:00 p.m.) and third Wednesday (noon) of each month, a different author will come to us via Zoom to speak about their recently published book.  As you can see from the flyer below, we have a wonderful line-up of 16 outstanding authors who have written books on many interesting and varied topics, each dealing in some way with Jewish life, religion, history or culture.  We are hoping Writers in Residences* (*theirs and ours) will be an opportunity for our communities to join together to listen and learn. At each event there will also be time for a moderated discussion.

Writers in Residences* (*theirs and ours) is generously sponsored by The Beth Pomerantz Education Fund.

All the events will require pre-registration with Zoom.
