About the Library
The S. Zalman and Ayala Abramov Library collects, preserves, and provides access to materials which support the academic programs of the Jerusalem campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, as well as the research needs of faculty and staff.
In Jerusalem, a city of many libraries with specialized holdings, the Abramov Library is making a unique contribution in a few areas, namely, the history of the Reform Movement and the American Jewish Experience. Other areas which are covered in some depth are Biblical Archaeology, Bible, Ancient Near East Studies, Hebrew Literature in English translation, and Studies of Israeli Society and Culture, especially as they relate to issues of Religion and State. The library provides coverage in all other Judaic subjects such as Talmud and Rabbinics, Midrashic Literature, Liturgy, Jewish Music, Jewish History, Jewish Philosophy, Jewish Education, Hebrew Language and Hebrew Literature.
