They do have quite a nice selection of books and ritual objects and they don't pressure you to buy. Little pricey, but the only game in town. Books cover the range of Jewish practice and perspectives. So why only a three?\nThe door is hard to open and closes fast and hard, I noticed it going in, but didn't think about it.\nl purchased an Elijah cup and when I was leaving the store the door closed quickly and hard on me and my shopping bag. \nThe door hit my bag and even wrapped, broke the cup. I had to have a cup, so I turned around and purchased another one. I was not offered a replacement, no offer to refund or even take something off the cup I had to buy.\nPenny wise, pound foolish, I still have a negative feeling about them. They did not create a loyal customer that day.

Statewide, the selection of Judaica and staff service is superior. It is worth any distance you may have to travel. You are never pressured to buy anything. And the staff has even made my four year old feel welcomed.

This is the place for all the bits and pieces Jewish people need for the holidays, and for just about any other time. The store carries tons of books - story books, cookbooks, fiction, nonfiction, and others with Jewish themes. They also carry items used for various holidays, including menorahs of all shapes and sizes. There is a small selection of Kosher candies (Hebrew language Bazooka is a hoot!) and some beauty products. There are also a large selection of mezuzahs, to hang by main doors to the home. If they don't have it, they generally know where to get it.

The main problem with the place is the location. If you're from out of the area, it's hard to find. The store is behind a supermarket, really underneath it. If you don't know the row of stores is there you won't see the place.

PROS: large variety of all sorts of things
CONS: location difficult to find

I have gone to this store several times. One one occasion, they sold me tefillin, that I later found out were not kosher. On another, they offered me mezuzot that were just photocopies and in now way acceptable. On a third trip, I tried
