Itamar's Bookstore is owned and run by Itamar Levy and Dorit Gani. Itamar is well known for locating out of print books and owns the Israeli "Itamar's Bookstore", Dorit has an academic degree in Hebrew Literature and has been working with Itamar for over ten years.
The Hebrew website of Itamar's bookstore has thousands of regular customers, but throughout the years, we received many requests from people all over the world who cannot read Hebrew but are interested in our books and service. As a result, we decided to build this web site, which is aimed to be a friendly, enjoyable and enriching place for every English reader who is interested in Israel, The Jewish people, Judaism and the Middle East. We promise to give each and every one of you a personal treatment and hope to interest and surprise you with the books and information that we update constantly.
We sell used books; many of them are out of print and rare.
We specialize in books about Israel, the Jewish people, Judaism and the Middle East. Our books cover these subjects from many angles: history, biography, art, photography, poetry, fiction, geography, religion and many more. We make an effort to offer only books in a good condition, but occasionally, a book's importance or uniqueness may make us offer it despite its fair condition. In order for you to be sure about your buy, each book's listing contains a description of its condition.
Most of our books are in English. A few books may be in other languages such as Yiddish, German, French or Hebrew. The language of the book is specified clearly in the book's listing.
