One of the great achievements in contemporary publishing is the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization, founded by Louis Littman for the express purpose of publishing classic scholarly works which might find it difficult to gain the support of commercial presses.
European Judaism

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 world’s leading publishers in the field.
