Sami Rohr Library of Recorded Yiddish Books

Yiddish Audiobooks

Yiddish literary works recorded by native speakers at Montreal's Jewish Public Library

The Yiddish Book Center’s Sami Rohr Library of Recorded Yiddish Books is a collection of Yiddish works read aloud by volunteers—some of them professional actors, many of them laypeople, all of them native Yiddish speakers—and recorded in the 1980s and ’90s at the Jewish Public Library in Montreal. It comprises some 150 titles, including novels, short stories, nonfiction works, memoirs, essays, and poetry, by both major and lesser-known Yiddish writers. 

You can listen to the recordings online, or download them, free of charge.
