Congratulations to Ivan M. Stettenheim Librarian Marjorie Shuster, recently appointed to the Syndey Taylor Book Award Committee — a prestigious honor awarded by the Association of Jewish Libraries. The Sydney Taylor Book Award is given to outstanding children and teen books each year that recognize Jewish values and Judaic literature. The award started in 1968, is named for the author of the classic “All-of-a-kind” family books.

A whole cart full of exciting new books is available in our 66th Street entrance lobby. Simply choose a book, sign it out, read it — then return it within two weeks. Each title is directly or tangentially related to a topic raised in the various programs and classes at Temple Emanu-El.

Temple members now can get all the convenience of eBooks free of charge, available 24/7 from virtually anywhere with our Library eBook Program. The collection currently features more than 150 fiction and nonfiction titles — with new arrivals every month. Email [email protected] for help with setting up your account.

Twice a year, each student in our Religious School will receive a book that builds and expands on topics raised in the school curriculum — from great heroes of our history, to the origins of our transitions, to contemporary topics.
