With the founding of the Hochschule für Jüdische Studien (HfJS) in 1979 the
library of the institution, which currently contains some 50,000 volumes, was
also established. Corresponding to the subjects taught at the HfJS, the library
contains books on the Bible and Biblical exegesis, Talmud and rabbinic
literature, Jewish history, philosophy, literature and art, as well as the several
languages that are taught in relationship to these subjects.
