Make a contribution to Ets Haim - Livraria Montezinos

A library without a catalogue is like a house without doors:

The world-famous Jewish library Ets Haim - Livraria Montezinos in Amsterdam houses a unique collection of manuscripts and printed books. It is situated in the heart of Amsterdams old Jewish neighbourhood in one of the buildings of the Portuguese Synagogue and is part of the Jewish Cultural Quarter (JCK).

The cultural and social heritage of Ets Haim is something that we want to keep alive and pass on to future generations. As the collection is of national and international importance and is a valuable source for academic research, we feel very strongly that we want to share what the library has to offer. In order to do that we need your help in completing the digital catalogue of our printed books. 

Many of our books are unique and can only be found in the collection of Ets Haim. Your contribution can make the difference in letting even more people enjoy the beauty of our manuscripts and printed books.

To achieve this, we desperately need your help.
