Jewish Lights Publishing (U.S.)

Given our name and subject matter, the tendency is immediately to pigeonhole us as "another publisher of Jewish books." As we are publishing books of a type that, in many cases, have not been published before, it is hard to find a simple category in which to place us. We recognize that it is also difficult to communicate this difference to a world that is used simply to categorizing things as "Jewish books" or "Judaica." We don't think of ourselves in either of those categories. We describe ourselves as publishing books that reflect the Jewish wisdom tradition for people of all faiths, all backgrounds. Our books really focus on the issue of the quest for the self, seeking meaning in life. They are books that help you to understand who you are and who you might become as a Jewish person, or as a person who is part of a tradition that has its roots in the Judeo-Christian world. They deal with issues of personal growth. They deal with issues of religious inspiration.
