Mary Myers Library

The Mary Myers Library located within Temple Israel has an impressive selection of Jewish-themed books, magazines, music, and videos.

If you are interested in a specific title, author or subject, please inquire about it from our librarian, Michael Hurwitz.

The thick, white binder containing a hard-copy listing of the library's collection, will no longer be updated. The binder contains material added through December 2017. The only up-to-date listing will be the on-line catalogue.

On the library desk, there is also a white binder which contains library policies.

Here is the complete, up-to-date list of our collection.


A title just added -- Christian Presence in the Holy Land by Fuad Farah -- is a well-written history of Christians in the Middle East. Written by an Arab Christian, this history starts before the advent of Christianity and continues through the present.

I wanted to mention this book because our temple library has so few books dealing with Christians in Israel/Palestine. Also a major goal of the author is to help make North Americans more aware of the plight of Christians in the Middle East today.

Definitely worth reading. Thank you, Rhonda, for donating this book.
