Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival

Event Details

  • The Washington DCJCC presents the annual Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival, October 14-24. The Festival includes 15 events, with celebrated authors and scholars including Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon speaking on his latest book, Telegraph Avenue: A Novel and Nobel Prize-winner Eric Kandel in conversation with The New York Times columnist David Brooks.

    The Festival also includes an evening of film and theater focused on Franz Kafka, biographer William Mann on Barbra Streisand’s electrifying rise to fame, a local author fair and a day of storytelling, crafts and fun for children.

    Many of our Festival books feature people who feel out of place—in their religion, family or even their gender. Tell us a true story about a time when you felt like you didn’t belong.

    Submissions are open to all. Send original, unpublished submissions of 500 words or less to litfest@washingtondcjcc.org by September 20. The first-place selection in each category (18+/under 18) will win the Community Prize for Writing, online publication and $100.
