Looking for Some Good Reading?

Our library has many good books which we can arrange for you to borrow. Books can be dropped off on your doorstep or picked up in at the synagogue. Books are clean and have not been touched by others and will be placed in a plastic bag. When books are returned, we do not recirculate them for 14 days. You can borrow books with confidence from our libraries during this time. Please feel free to use our online catalog to browse the library collection.

If you have any questions regarding the use of the catalog or our library collection, please contact our synagogue librarian, Dr. Rafi Simon. Rafi may be reached at (216) 337-6490 during the day and early evening. We want you to enjoy some healthy reading from our library! Here are a few of our recent acquisitions:
