Of the two main Jewish book stores in Silver Spring, Abe's is the place I go when I have an idea of what I'm looking for but I need quidance regarding what I should buy. The store is dark, cramped and won't win any design awards for layout and presentation, but the breadth of material and the knowledge of the staff make the shopping exprerience very worth while.

Abe's Jewish Bookstore is a smallish, cramped, somewhat musty shop located in an old-fashioned strip mall in Silver Spring. On the whole it has a decidedly Old World quality. Devoted to Jewish learning and Jewish living, it is crammed with books (old and new), music in many media, and made-in-Israel Judaica--mezuzot, menorahs, candles, Sedar plates, you name it.

Nothing in this shop is exactly tidy, but there's an underlying organization to everything that makes its merchandise pleasant to browse. I've never been inside when there were more than two customers--which is a good thing, given the closeness of the shelves and display areas.

I have many fond memories of time spent here--looking for books on Judaism and Jewish history, seeking out my own tapes of the Diaspora Yeshivah Band ("Live from King David's Tomb"), buying a new menorah, and looking for bar and bat mitzah gifts. I live further away now, and I don't get back often, but it's nice to know the old shop is still there.

I give it 4--partly out of sentiment and partly because it represents a way of doing business that is vanishing all too quickly.

PROS: Comfortable, old-fashioned, specialty shop
CONS: Musty, crowded, the end of an era
