Looks like every other link? Yes, but this one is the key to our on-line catalog of books. You can check by author, title or subject matter to see what books we own and which of them are available for check-out, i.e. “IN.”  The option to reserve items on-line is  not yet available. Try it. See what we have and visit the library when you are here.

April University Series

Tuesdays in April, 7:00 pm

The word ‘seder’ means order, and there is a definite and deliberate order to the Passover ritual that allows us to experience the Exodus story through symbolic foods, songs, prayers, and activities. Join Rabbi Randy on the Tuesdays in April  leading up to Passover as we follow the seder in order, using the wonderfully creative book “A Different Night.”
