Yeshiva University’s students present the 30th annual Seforim Sale, North America’s largest Jewish book sale, February 5-26, in Belfer Hall, 2495 Amsterdam Ave. on YU’s Wilf Campus in Manhattan. YU students run the sale completely, doing everything from ordering supplies to setting up the premises, doing the marketing, and working with all the technology the project entails.
Last year’s sale drew more than 15,000 people from the tristate area and grossed nearly $1 million. The sale offers discounts on the latest of more than 12,500 titles in rabbinic and academic literature, cookbooks, children’s books, music and Judaica.
The sale, a highlight for the YU community, brings students, alumni, and members of the community to the campus. Proceeds support various initiatives, including student activities on campus and undergraduate scholarships. This year’s theme is “Technology and Torah”; events, speakers, and programming scheduled throughout the sale will focus on the ways technological innovations can enhance Torah learning for the modern Jew.
Seforim Sale’s website, www.theseforimsale.com, provides consumers with another way to take advantage of the sale.
