The library collection in Jewish Studies has its origins early in the history of Cornell University and now covers a vast array of topics and disciplines ranging from the earliest texts of the Jewish religion to contemporary Israeli society.
The bibliographer for Jewish Studies through 30 June 2003 was Yoram Szekely; during his tenure, the Jewish Studies collection grew significantly in response to increasing scholarly interest at Cornell University, notably through the growth of the Jewish Studies Program.
The Jewish Studies collection endeavors to strengthen library holdings portraying all aspects of the Jewish experience: Judaism as an ancient and modern system of belief and practice; the Jewish people as a diaspora of communities bound by ethnicity, language, and religion; the modern Jewish state of Israel with Jerusalem as its national and spiritual capital.
