The Seforim Sale

The Seforim Sale


“Learning at RIETS, has been a unique experience and opportunity for me. The amount of growth in both my knowledge and skills since I have started semicha is truly amazing. The most extraordinary thing for me is that I am able to take both the knowledge and skills beyond the walls of the beit midrash and into my interactions in everyday life.”

Aaron Ishida is from Cincinnati, Ohio. After being involved in NCSY in high school he spent one year at the Israel Experience at Bar-Ilan University and another year at Derech Ohr Somayach, Jerusalem. After two years in Israel, he attended Yeshiva University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. While in YU, Aaron was greatly involved with The Seforim Sale, running sale during his senior year. He is currently in his third year of semicha and has been learning under Rav Herschel Reichman for six years. He recently completed our joint certificate program in mental health counseling with the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and is hoping to continue his studies after semicha. Aaron was recently married to Halleli Chapman this past May. #MeetOurTalmidim
Is it possible to actually talk to someone? I have been trying to get help with an order for the past 4 months with almost no email responses!!!
Will you guys eventually restock on R. Bazak's new sefer, To This Very Day?

I am very, very proud to be featured at The Seforim Sale over at Yeshiva University. Come find me in The Haggadah Section.

Better yet, take a picture with me, and sent it over. I'd love that.
Is there any customer service?? I was shipped an incorrect order and have sent about 10 emails over 6 months and only once got a response that it is being looked into. Can I have my correct order?
How can I buy the new book, Akarut Hilkhatit by Rav Bigman and Rav Holtzman, in the US?
At The Seforim Sale at Yeshiva University!
Until February 23rd or the inventory runs out – whichever comes first.
Few copies are available – hurry to buy!

The seforim sale is over, and the web site catalog is thus also down. Is there any way I can still find the catalog? Just perusing it is fantastic.

North America's largest Jewish book sale, completely run by Yeshiva University students. For all your Seforim needs!Open Feb 6th-24th 2022 We are the biggest Jewish bookstore in the Entire North America for 1 month in February.

We also are an entirely run by Yeshiva University Students as well!


After much research and analysis, we have decided not to have the in-person Seforim Sale this year due to social distancing restrictions as per the health and safety guidelines. We have explored many different options, however, given the ever-changing NYS and NYC guidelines, it was not possible to plan and host the event this year. We hope to see everyone next year!
