Major book collection arrives at the Department

We are pleased and honored to announce that Prof. Ada Rapoport-Albert, an outstanding scholar of Hasidism, Sabbathism, female religiosity and numerous other issues in the history of East European Jews, left her entire working collection to the Department. Our library has been expanded by approx. 6,000 volumes of books, magazines, article reprints, doctoral dissertations as well as Prof. Rapoport-Albert’s notes. The collection will be made available to readers after all the necessary processing has been completed. We would also like to extend our sincere thanks to Prof. Rapoport-Albert’s family for their generous assistance in making possible this bequest that so greatly benefits both students and faculty.
