An extensive collection of Yiddish-language audio books is available for free listening and downloading through a project of the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Mass.

The Sami Rohr Library of Recorded Yiddish Books comprises approximately 150 titles, including novels, short stories, nonfiction, memoirs, essays and poetry.

“The recordings are the last chance most of us will ever have to hear Yiddish literature read aloud in the voices of its original readers,” said Aaron Lansky, founder and president of the Yiddish Book Center. “They’re one of a kind.”

 The recordings can be accessed at
