Jewish Book Festival Order Form

We have a “Zoomtastic” author lineup, 
running from December 3 to March 30. 
There is a wide variety of genres, 
with something for everyone!

As a result of the generosity of our Patrons, the Greater Naples Jewish Book Festival has become one of the top Jewish Book Festivals in the country. 

There are three levels of Patrons:  Platinum, Silver and Bronze. (Being a Bronze Patron is a great deal; you receive tickets to all of the events $212 value for $118). If you become a Patron by January 28, you will be acknowledged in the March Federation Star. 

For more information on Book Festival authors and events, please visit: www.jewishbookfestival.org.

Being a Patron has many advantages...

  • Patrons will be pre-registered for each event.
  • Patrons will have an opportunity to greet each other in an informal chat following the conclusion of one or two of the presentations. 
  • Patrons will be acknowledged in the Federation Star as well as on the Jewish Book Festival website.
  • Patrons receive advance notification of the authors who will participate in the 2021-22 Jewish Book Festival.

PLATINUM PATRONS ($500) and SILVER PATRONS($225), will receive three additional benefits:

  • The heartwarming feeling that you are helping to financially support the Jewish Book Festival above and beyond the cost of event tickets.
  • Invitations to two exclusive (virtual) Patron gatherings with Book Festival authors following their presentations.
  • A copy of author Lori Gottlieb’s bestselling book, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.
