New York Public Library - Dorot Jewish Division

Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street
New York, NY 10018

United States

Type: Library

Description: "The Dorot Jewish Division is uniquely constituted as both a subject and a language division. While the collection offers commentary on all aspects of Jewish life it also includes Hebrew and Yiddish-language texts on general subjects. Here one finds a census in French of the Jews of Alsace taken in 1784 and a volume of essays written in German, examining eight hundred years of Jewish life in Munich, as well as a Yiddish manual on stenography and a Hebrew text on aeronautics. About forty percent of the Division's holdings are in Hebrew characters and the remainder are in other languages, primarily English, German, Russian, and French. The Division is especially strong in bibliographies and reference works, Jewish Americana, history and social studies, Kabbalistic and Hasidic works, texts by Christian Hebraists, rabbinic responsa, Hebrew and Yiddish literature, and periodicals and newspapers."
