Library

The Dorothy L. Spiwak Memorial Library, a member of the Association of Jewish Libraries, contains a Judaica collection of some 8,000 titles including books, films, periodicals and musical selections.

 

The library serves as the epicenter of Jewish learning in the synagogue. Staffed by a part-time librarian, Claudia Roberson, and volunteers, the library is open during religious school hours and during the school year, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The collection can be accessed by electronic catalog. Members as well as non-members may borrow from the library.

 

The collection includes popular fiction and non-fiction including books about science, medicine, art and cooking. The library also houses a large reference section which includes the Encyclopedia Judaica and local Jewish history.

 

Constantly evolving to support, complement and enrich the adult and juvenile educational programs of the synagogue, the library committee hosts numerous programs throughout the year including domestic and foreign films, book fairs, a Jewish Poetry Program, author talks and trips to museums. The library has a young kids reading corner with a child-friendly table and chairs.

 

Weekly newspapers include: The New Jersey Jewish News, The New York Jewish Week and the International Jerusalem Post. Monthly periodicals included Jewish Woman, Moment and Jewish Book World.

 

The library also has wireless capability. Bring your laptop and enjoy the library.
