The Samuel J. Friedman Memorial Library

Faculty meeting in the Samuel Friedman Library

Jewish Thought faculty meet in the Samuel J. Friedman Library

Comprising approximately 2,000 books and videos, the Samuel Friedman Library serves as the geographical heart of the Department of Jewish Thought. Featuring books related to all areas of the Jewish experience, the collection helps to foster the passion for inquiry that is central to the Jewish tradition. Many of our classes and events are held in the library, and it provides an intimate setting for students to get to know each other and their professors, which is integral to our mission.
