LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR – series of book lists for young readers


Initiated in response to the horrific act of domestic terrorism at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA in October 2018, and in continuing response to rising antisemitism in the United States, the Association of Jewish Libraries offers the Love Your Neighbor series of book lists for young readers. The Jewish books recommended on these lists are meant to be shared with ALL readers, including non-Jewish children and teens. Books read in youth impact future outlooks, and it is our hope that meeting Jews on the page will inspire friendship when readers meet Jews in real life.
