Update Fall 2021: The new Library of JTS is now open only to JTS students, faculty, and staff. At this time, no outside visitors are permitted in the Library. Learn about current usage guidelines and safety policies.

The JTS Library houses the greatest collection of Judaica in the Western Hemisphere, providing the Jewish community and the world with direct access to an astonishing array of materials that speak to Jewish history and our shared Jewish experience. Our collections draw researchers and scholars from across the globe, and we in turn loan materials to institutions around the world, sharing the cultural resources we have been acquiring for over 120 years. We invite students and the public to explore the collection in our space on campus or online.
