Max M. and Majorie B. Kampelman Collection of Jewish Ethics

A collage of books covers from the Kampelman collection

Through the generosity of Max M. and Marjorie B. Kampelman, a Collection of Jewish Ethics was established in 1983 at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics.

The Collection now contains approximately 2000 books covering Jewish ethics and related subjects, including Holocaust studies. We also hold a number of journals discussing bioethics issues through the lens of Judaism.

Interested readers are invited to use the Collection by appointment. Please contact the Bioethics Research Library at to make arrangements.
