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

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.

You may browse the Kampelman Collection on LibraryThing or view the a list of holdings housed in the Bioethics Research Library on the main campus of Georgetown University. A PDF including links to “Find in a Library” using Worldcat is also available here: “Kampelman Collection Linked Bibliography“.

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