WELCOME

Welcome to the 27th JCC Lane Dworkin Rochester Jewish Book Festival celebrating all things literary. This year we remember fondly Barbara S. Lane who, along with her husband, Sheldon A. Lane of blessed memory, established the JCC Lane Dworkin Rochester Jewish Book Festival in 1992. Barbara adored this festival. With great enthusiasm and humor, she helped plan events down to the fine details, making every attendee, author, book buyer, and volunteer feel like family. Her passion, smarts, and joie de vivre will be missed by all who knew her. She would have been particularly pleased with this year’s festival with its wide variety of topics—history, humor, health—and the new centerpiece, 48 HOURS OF FOOD. We dedicate this year’s festival to her and extend our gratitude to her family for carrying on her devotion to this event. May her memory be for a blessing.
Stacey Freed and Steven Levitsky, RJBF Co-Chairs
