An 85-year-old store that sells Judaica announced on Monday that it has a new lease on life — for the next year at least. West Side Judaica on Broadway between 88th and 89th Streets sent us a note announcing the lease extension.
In 2017, the store said it would close because business had declined. But the announcement sparked a swell of sales that inspired owner Yaakov Saltzer to reconsider. This year, the store held a clearance sale and said it “doesn’t look promising.”
That all appears to have changed on Monday:
West Side Judaica is happy to announce, that we just extended our lease!
That means that we will continue servicing our community with all your Judaica needs!
Come stop by for our full selection of books, gifts (Chanukah is around the corner!), and everything else we have to offer!
At West Side Judaica we pride ourselves in giving you the best shopping experience that one can ask for. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find anything and everything you may need!

This is heart-warming news. I need to visit this place soon! Many visits to Barney Greengrass but not even one visit to West Side Judaica. That needs to change.
Great news, mazal tov!
Very happy to hear this news about Westside Judaica. MAZL TOV!!
Wonderful news! Now folks have to be encouraged to return and shop there.
So happy to hear this news!
Great news. I always visit this store when I’m in New York. Grew up in the neighborhood but now am in Worcester, MA, after 40 years in Kansas City.
Mazel Tov!!! This makes me so happy! When they had their “clearance” sale I would go in and shop for whatever I needed but ask them to charge me the full price…it broke my heart to imagine them closing. This store means so much to the neighborhood. The owners and staff are the kindest most helpful people and welcome everyone. Can’t wait to head over soon for some Chanukah shopping. Finally some good news around here!!
