The Levi Yitzchok Library was founded in 1972 following the directive of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. The Rebbe spoke about the importance of opening new Jewish institutions and specifically Jewish libraries. The Levi Yitzchok Library is named for the Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Schneerson. In a direct letter from the Rebbe to the Levi Yitzchok Library, the Rebbe gave his blessing for success and emphasized that this library not only be a place for reading books, but that it should be a place for meaningful discussions that strengthen Jewish pride.
Here at the Levi Yitzchok Library we are pleased to offer over 3,000 Jewish books for loan.
