Rare Items

The Lamm Jewish Library of Australia is home to thousands of rare and unique items that are of significant historical, cultural, and religious importance. These items include books, newspapers, pamphlets, posters, and other materials that are often one-of-a-kind and some of which date back more than a century.

The library’s rare and unique items are not only valuable for the Jewish community but also hold significant cultural and historical importance for the wider community. These items provide a window into the past and help us better understand the world we live in today. By preserving these items, we can ensure that future generations can learn from them and gain a deeper understanding of our history and culture.

Our Library is working to catalogue all the items in our archive, and provide digital and physical access to these amazing documents.
