My father, Rabbi Yitzchak Witty, died in 2005 leaving a considerable number of
judaica books, including sefarim, Jewish history Jewish education, history of
Jewish education and journals, e.g. Bitzaron. My mother, le-orech yamim
ve-shanim, has recently begun distributing these, sefarim, books and journals
among my siblings and myself.
I have no room for them in my home--as I have my own substantial collection.
A most appropriate legacy to my father's lifelong dedication to Jewish
education and his love of books of all sorts would be to donate these books to
a university library where they might be used in higher education, research or
prepare someone for a career in the rabbinate, education or Jewish Studies.
I ask that the recipient pay for shipping and that in the books (and where
feasible periodicals) a bookplate be affixed indicating the source of the
donation, including of course my father's name, Jewish and secular dates of
passing and some very brief biographical description.
If you are interested, please contact me at nwitty at verizon [DOT] net and I
will supply you with a list of the available sefarim, books and journals.
