Library | Adath Israel


The Auerbach Library is a lending and research library, which holds a collection of books and materials covering a broad spectrum of Jewish life and culture from around the world and from local Connecticut cities and towns. It also contains the personal collection of the late Samuel Auerbach, Middletown resident, well-regarded Jewish scholar, teacher and member of the Congregation.

Additional very old textual materials are on permanent loan from the Adath Israel Museum to the Wesleyan University Archives and Special Collections. They can be made available for study at the University’s Olin Library where they are housed.

The Auerbach library contains reference materials representing standard classical Judaica as well as some of the newest books in Jewish publishing. It provides primarily books for study, pleasure reading, enrichment programs, and a childrens’ library.

The catalog of holdings is being loaded onto an on-line version that will be linked to this page of our website for easy access.
