Our Mission


The Yosef Yitzchak Library is designed as a lending library to be enjoyed and cherished by adults, teens and children on an ongoing basis. By private appointment only for now, at special hours, our long term vision is to offer a fully equipped Judaic library for all, the first of its kind in NYC, in which to study, read, relax, and research. We currently have a wide selection of books on Jewish History, Jewish Law, Talmud, Kabbala, Philosophy, Cooking, Hebrew, Fiction, Prayer, and a special section of books geared to children and teens.

Plans are in the works for many accompanying programs, such as story time for children, summer reading programs, lectures for adults, and Jewish Movie nights.



About The Library

Rabbi Fitzy (Yosef Yitzchak) Lipskier, OB"M

Led by Yehuda and Faya Lipskier, the Yosef Yitzchak Library will open its doors as a community lending library in the winter of 2021.

The library is dedicated to the memory of a man with a passion for learning and a love of books. Rabbi Fitzy Lipskier, of blessed memory, father of Chabad West Sixties Rabbi Yehuda Lipskier, passed away at the young age of 45 in a tragic accident. A few years prior to his passing he had volunteered his time to opening and operating a Judaic children's library in his small town of Morristown, New Jersey. He was a dedicated teacher at the Rabbinical College of America, a loving father of eight children, and a mentor and leader in his community.

The Yosef Yitzchak Library is being inaugurated to coincide with his 26th Yartzeit on Shvat 11, 5781. Extended family and friends will support and sponsor this project.
