Editorial Focus

Paper Brigade is the print literary journal of Jewish Book Council. Composed of articles, interviews, fiction, poetry, and artwork, it celebrates the breadth and diversity of today’s Jewish books in the U.S. and abroad. The journal seeks to expand commonly held ideas of what constitutes the Jewish experience and to highlight ties between Jewish books and the wider literary world.
