Jewish Public Library

The Jewish Public Library (JPL) remains unique among Montreal’s – and the world’s – Jewish institutions. A full service lending and research library containing North America’s largest circulating Judaica collection, we are an internationally-recognized resource while also meeting the informational, educational and recreational needs of Jewish Montrealers of all ages and backgrounds.

The Main Library holds over 150,000 items in the five official languages; the 30,000 item Children’s Library also offers many activities for children up to 14 years of age; and the Archives help preserve and honour Canada’s Jewish history for generations to come.
