  • Beautiful space with interesting displays of a rare Yiddish Linotype machine and other old printing presses, Jewish history exhibits, many old and beautiful Yiddish books, event spaces, a children's book area, and beautiful grounds with gardens to walk, sit and enjoy, or picnic at. Well worth the visit whether or not you're interested in Yiddish books, even if you just want to enjoy the grounds and interesting architecture.

  • Incredible collection of Yiddish books, exhibits, and cultural artifacts around Yiddish culture. Great place to bring a school group.
