Founded by Louis Littman in memory of his father to explore, explain, and perpetuate the Jewish heritage, the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization published its first book in 1965. It has gone on to publish many highly regarded titles
and has established a reputation as one of the leading publishers in the field. Littman’s academic books are selected for their outstanding scholarship, objectivity, and new insights. Many are considered definitive in their field. Littman’s
more general titles, written in an accessible style, aim to make important ideas available to a readership concerned with the state of the Jewish world.
