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.


Three people have recently contacted me regarding book donations from their collections. I visited all three homes and took a lot of books on Jewish-related subjects. After the High Holy Days, watch the library for an updated listing (taped to a closet door) of newly added titles. Also look at the new titles on display in the library. There are a lot so please give me time to process them all. In time, all the new titles will be added to the on-line listing of our collection accessable through the link above.
