It is with great sadness that JBS acknowledges the passing of one of our founders and inspiration, Kenneth Schwartz. Kenny was always a happy, positive and supportive friend who worked alongside us to encourage discussion and raise awareness about issues within the Jewish community. An activist and supporter for many causes, Kenny was intelligent, articulate and passionate, but more than all else he was kind and considerate. He will be missed as a colleague and friend. May his family find comfort among the mourners of Jerusalem.
Jewish Book Summaries
For the People of The Book
Jewish Book Reviews (JBR), a project of The Chasen Family Foundation, is dedicated to bringing reviews and summaries of books on Jewish interests to a broader audience . understanding that a more educated community will be a more engaged community. By condensing and distributing the core messages of important works of fiction and non-fiction, JBR makes the lessons of these fine works accessible to the broader community.
JBR, through the Chasen Family Foundation, also supports lectures, seminars and book review classes.
