Stay ahead of the learning curve

The world is on information overload. Information and knowledge are increasing faster than anyone can keep up. The real challenge is staying ahead of the learning curve: knowing how to find information, sort out what’s relevant, and use knowledge to your best advantage.

The American Hebrew Academy’s electronic and bound library collections let you get your hands on time-honored texts and the latest information technology.

5,000 volumes and growing. If you browse our library collection today, you’ll find 5,000+ volumes spanning a broad range of traditional academic subjects, fiction, and Jewish studies. Many of our texts are written in Hebrew and our collection includes copies of the Torah, Talmud, Mishnah, Zohar, and other sacred texts. While technology provides us with many advances, we are “people of the book” and believe a library of bound volumes is equally important to on-line resources.

A universe of knowledge on-line

We also subscribe to on-line services that provide the full texts of more than 8,000 magazines and journals to students.
