James H. Grossmann Memorial
Jewish Book Month Celebration

Jewish Book Month speaks to the mission of our Center; to heighten awareness of one's Jewish identity and enrich our Jewish lives. We have always been "the people of the book," and the celebration of Jewish Book Month gives us a wonderful opportunity to transmit our values to the entire community as well as to future generations. The celebration continues throughout the year with programs featuring Jewish authors and books of Jewish interest.

The Bronx experiences of New York Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay, J Crew’s CEO Mickey Drexler, The Museum of Natural History’s Neil DeGrasse Tyson will be discussed. Alda will draw a film-like portrait of the Bronx from the early twentieth century until today.
