Shavua HaSefer

Shavua Hasefer,  Hebrew Book Week, is celebrating its 50th year,

with the Jerusalem fair located in the Liberty Bell Park.

For many adults it seems like last year and the year before that,

even though the Hebrew books on sale,

cover a large range

of sellers,


and a large variety

 of titles,

there should be

something for everyone to read.

In the early evening hours,


lots of children,

are looking at books.

A new generation of book fans are in the park,

enjoying, not just books,

but also live entertainment


at the many scheduled performances

and simple fun.

Shavua Hasefer,  Hebrew Book Week runs from Jun 15-25, 2011.

    Annual Book Week is a great time to spend a late afternoon or evening perusing beautiful books and literary items in a most beautiful park. The selection and offerings of books were overwhelming and a delight to sample. However, this is a most dangerous place to be if one is a bibliophile or former librarian – the literary seduction is intense and extremely hard to walk away from. My mind will now be richer and my wallet poorer. Ah, books! May your future be bright and long…despite e-books breathing down your spines! Great pictures, Sharon. You truly capture “the” moment in a wonderful, truthful manner.
