The Lillie Goldstein Traveling Judaica Collection

The Lillie Goldstein Traveling Judaica Collection, with its unique designation as a traveling library, was developed with the generous support of the Lillie Goldstein Charitable Trust to further Touro Law Center's goal of presenting Jewish thought and learning, particularly the Jewish legal tradition, within a scholarly framework. 
 
Established to make available to law schools without Judaica collections the resources necessary to offer courses in Jewish law, the collection of more than 420 titles in over 700 volumes in Hebrew and/or English includes duplicates of the core halakah (Jewish law) materials found in the Gould Law Library's Judaica Collection, as well as other materials chosen to enrich the study of Jewish law.
 
Samuel J. Levine, Professor of Law and Director of the Jewish Law Institute at Touro Law Center, is the primary advisor. His role in shaping the collection is a reflection of one of Institute goals: to promote the teaching of Jewish law in American law schools. Professor Chaim Povarsky, former Library Director Daniel Jordan, and Judaica Librarians Lois Markowitz and Carol S. Joseph made the initial selections. Ms. Markowitz and Ms. Joseph managed the collection until their retirements.  
 
The Lillie Goldstein Traveling Judaica Collection is offered as an interlibrary loan for a semester or for an academic year. The only obligation is the return postage.  Borrowers to date include: ITT-Chicago Kent College of Law, University of Utah School of Law, Boston College Law School, Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center, University of Colorado School of Law, Pepperdine University School of Law, University of Tulsa College of Law, and American University, Washington College of Law.
 
Inquiries should be directed to: Irene Crisci, Iterim Director, Gould Law Library, Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, 255 Eastview Drive, Central Islip, NY, 11722. You also may reach out by phone at 631.761.7155.
