The Yiddish Book Center works to rescue Yiddish and other modern Jewish books and open up their content to the world.
As the world’s only comprehensive supplier of Yiddish books, the Book Center helped establish Yiddish collections at more than 600 great libraries, including Harvard, Yale, Library of Congress, the British Library, Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and national libraries in countries as distant as Australia, China and Japan.
Our beautiful 37,000-square-foot headquarters in Amherst, Massachusetts is a lebedike velt – a lively world featuring an open Yiddish book repository, theatres, art galleries, museum exhibitions about Yiddish language and culture, and more.
Monday – Friday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
