The Temple Sinai Library is relatively small in the total number of volumes, but extensive in the array of subjects that they cover. There are approximately 2,300 books on Jewish topics or by Jewish authors. The collection includes reference materials, Jewish Liturgy, adult fiction and non-fiction, children’s fiction and non-fiction, periodicals, VHS tapes and music on tapes and CDs. The collection is constantly being expanded through donations and purchase, and Congregational input is welcome. Synagogue members are welcome at ANY time to check out books from the library – just leave a note on the Librarian’s desk letting her know what you borrowed. Books and tapes may be checked out for a month and renewed if desired. Children in the Religious School are scheduled to visit the library once or twice a month and may check out books or tapes. Our librarian is Shelley Sbar. If you have any questions, or just want to say “hi,” feel free to stop in the library to see her.


Please Discontinue All Book Donations for the Time Being

In preparation for renovation the Temple Sinai Library is not accepting any book donations or donations of any other materials for the time being.
