Featured Books

Welcome to the Featured Books page, where 5 or so books from the collection are set aside and showcased here. When choosing these books, we consider the general interest of their content, the historical significance of both their authors and the impact of the books themselves, their rareness or accessibility, and, at times, simply extraordinary visual appeal.

NOTE: All transliterations of titles and authors' names are spelled as they appear in the UMD Libraries' database so that you may reference them more easily.When the transliterations of the titles or authors listed here differs from the spelling most commonly used, the more common spelling appears in [brackets]. Some of the books have an English title page in addition to a Yiddish one. These pages often contain a whole or partial translation of the title, or sometimes just a brief description of the book's content, such as "Literary Essays". In cases when the translation is complete, it is provided in (parentheses) after the transliteration. When a translation is incomplete or merely a descriptor, it appears italicized within (parentheses).
