About the project

The Jerusalem International Book Fair was established in 1963 to host authors, editors, publishers and other book trade professionals from around the world to sell books, create new projects and talk the business of books. The fair is held every other year at Binyanei Ha’uma, the Jerusalem convention center, and other venues.The Jerusalem Foundation has supported an effort to bring publishers from Arab countries to the fair, and several events held in connection with the fair, such as the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies Forum, a public roundtable on issues of relevance to the publishing world, and Voices from the Hilltop of Tantur: A Meeting of Middle Eastern Writers and Filmmakers, held at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute for Theological Studies in 2007.
