Caspari Center Library
The Caspari Center library is a valuable resource for any student of Judaism, Christianity, or Messianic Judaism. Started in 1982, the library now holds about 7,000 titles, with a strong focus on the Jewish roots of Christianity and the history of Jewish believers in Jesus. The majority of our books are in English and Hebrew, with a number of reference and other relevant books in German, Norwegian, and Danish. In addition, the library holds several thousand journal issues and hundreds of lectures recorded at the Caspari Center. It also provides access to the Media Review , a weekly summary of articles from the Israeli press on Messianic Jews, Christians, and missions in Israel. You can find complete archives of the published reviews and original article clippings dating back to 1977.
The library is a quiet place of study for both local and international students and scholars. The library holds about 20 reading spaces and offers free wireless internet access. Registered users may borrow books for their studies for up to one month, with the option of renewing the loan after this time.
For more information see the Caspari library guidelines.
The library is open Sunday – Thursday from 9am – 4pm. (Closed Fridays, Saturdays, and Jewish holidays).
