Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica

Collection History

The Judaica Library was built on a superb collection of books privately owned by Rabbi Leonard C. Mishkin of Chicago. When UF set out to acquire Mishkin's collection in 1977, it was the largest and best personal library of Judaica and Hebraica in the United States.
