Chai Books began by Rabbi Shaul Engel in 1994 by importing a single set of books for the purpose of availing people to the treasures available overseas
as a means of getting discounted Jewish books into Melbourne initially just for home use and then, as it became evident that there was a big need for this, it grew into a home based business.
Slowly this too needed to expand and it moved into a small local shop and our clientelle grew as well.
We have now expanded further and moved to a centrally located larger premises and have increased our range to include an ever growing range of Judaica items.
Chai books is continually expanding our range across the board to meet with customer needs.
We have just lauched our online store to service the needs of our current and future intrestate and international clients.
