2023 Canadian Jewish Literary Awards

CFY is proud to support the 2023 Canadian Jewish Literary Awards, recognizing and rewarding the finest Canadian writing on Jewish themes and subjects.


The Awards Ceremony was held in-person at York University in Toronto on Sunday, October 15.

These annual awards recognize the finest books with Jewish themes and subjects by Canadian authors. The works enrich Canadian Jewish writing and culture and enable us better to understand our collective past, our shared present and the world of the future.

Awards will be presented in the following categories: Biography/Memoir, Fiction, History, Holocaust, Jewish Thought and Culture, Scholarship, Youth Literature, and Yiddish.

We look forward to welcoming the winning authors who will discuss the significance of their work and read from the winning works.
