Rabbi Avi Magid Jewish Studies Room
974 Jackson Library
The Magid Jewish Studies Room was dedicated in November, 2007. It houses 1300 volumes, collected over 40 years, from Rabbi Magid's personal library that he generously donated to the University Libraries. The collection includes important books in Judaica and greatly enhances and supports the University's Judaica studies. All materials in the Jewish Studies Room circulate.
The room also provides an attractive study and group collaborative space. Computers are in the room and wireless is available as well.

He also holds the PhD from the University of Hawaii-Manoa. He served congregations in San Francisco, CA, White Plains, NY and Honolulu, HI, and currently resides in Los Angeles.
