The Temple Shir Tikva Library, located on the second floor of the Education Center, offers resources to enrich the Jewish lives of all members of the congregation. We have more than 1,500 volumes on our shelves, a collection that has been carefully cultivated since the temple’s inception. We encourage congregants—both adults and children—to visit the library, browse through the displays, and borrow materials for enjoyment and edification.
Adults will find a large selection of reference books such as Jewish encyclopedias, Midrash, Hebrew dictionaries and more. There are non-fiction works covering a wide range of Jewish topics—holidays, liturgy, history, biography, humor, women's issues, cookbooks and much more. Fiction includes classics by Sholem Aleichem, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Elie Wiesel, and many contemporary selections.
Our library offers a wonderful assortment of books for children of all ages to read on their own or together with their parents. The collection includes picture books, folk tales, history, biography, holidays, crafts and a large selection of fiction.
