One Book, One Jewish Community

One Book, One Jewish Community (OBOJC) is the largest community-wide Jewish literacy program in the country. Each year, Jewish Learning Venture develops rich resource materials about the selected book and partners with synagogues and agencies that adopt OBOJC as a vehicle for discussing, studying, and celebrating the book and the values and issues raised in it.

The 2015-2016 OBOJC book, A Backpack, A Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka by Lev Golinkin, will be highlighted by more than 40 program partners in the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond.
