The HBI Conversations is a reading-club style program that encourages the reading and discussion of Jewish women’s texts for which there is a set curriculum and supplementary readers guides. HBI Conversations is a program that sparks discussion and builds community by bringing authors and filmmakers whose work focuses on Judaism and gender to speak to Conversations groups. Intimate groups of twenty-five to thirty meet in private homes and split their time between author presentations and lively discussion. Books and films are drawn from all genres and span a wide range of themes, from relationships and families to the Holocaust and international Jewish experience. Click here for past authors.

The HBI Series on Jewish Women publishes a wide range of books about Jewish women and gender issues in diverse contexts. By offering fresh perspectives on Jewish women’s history, lives and experiences worldwide, the series aims to close a major gap in Jewish learning.
