Jewish Book Week is one of the most essential events in the annual Jewish cultural calendar and this year's is no exception especially as we have 10 pairs of tickets up for grabs for the Bookniks evening on Thursday March 1 at Royal National Hotel in Bedford Way, London WC1.

The night would normally cost £15 a ticket, so it's well worth your while entering this fabulous competition.

The evening is hosted by film journalist Jason Solomons and consists of three events. Postcards from the Unholy Land at 6.45pm, Is Humour Good for the Jews at 8.30pm and The Bookniks session at 10.00 pm.

Postcards from the Unholy Land sees Israeli novelist Etgar Keret, journalist, performer and artist Avi Pitchon, singer-songwriter Idit Eshel and sociologist Keith Kahn-Harris discuss Israeli culture today and give you the view you never get in the news.

Is Humour Good for the Jews features panellists Judy Batalion, Steve Bernstein, Adam Bloom, Jonny Geller and Penelope Solomon examine what makes Jewish humour so special.

The Bookniks session is a cabaret fusion of music, visuals and literary performances with Idit Eshel, Sophie Hannah, Etgar Keret, David Maine and Jason Solomons.
