|Dear Fellow Book Lovers,
As the end of financial year approaches, we want to thank everyone who has supported Melbourne Jewish Book Week over the past twelve months – our donors, sponsors, and community. The team and board are encouraged by your commitment to the work we do to promote the literary richness of Jewish culture to a wide Australian audience.
Over the past twelve months, Melbourne Jewish Book Week has been bringing the best Australian and international writers and thinkers into your living rooms, including:
We have now started planning our 2022 in-person festival, and we can't wait for it.
We would love you to commit to that festival, and to MJBW in general by making a donation to our End of Financial Year Campaign
After our 2020 festival was cancelled, we made the decision to go online, continue doing what we do best, but not to charge audiences to watch our events. People were doing it tough enough as it was. We have had no festival-related revenue from audiences since 2018, but have remained committed to paying our writers and presenters, and to meeting the administrative costs of the organisation.
As the end of the tax year approaches, and you may be considering making donations, please support MJBW with a tax deductible donation as we continue to bring the best of the literary world to you, particularly as we transition into programming for an in-person festival next year.
Festival Director, MJBW
