[book] [book] Jewish Book of the Year
Everett Family Foundation Award

Jewish Book Council has bestowed the honor of 2014 Jewish Book of the Year upon a series for the first time in its history. The decision to honor Yale University Press's Jewish Lives series, a series which illuminates the lives of great figures in Jewish history, came four years into its publication in recognition of its achievements thus far and its forthcoming contributions for years to come. JBC seeks to highlight and applaud the publisher, Yale University Press in collaboration with the Leon D. Black Foundation, for taking on this important task as well as show support for the endeavor and continue to nurture an audience for works that share the stories and people behind our collective history.
