Library

The Rabbi Ferenc and Paula Raj Library at Congregation Beth El is in two rooms beside the sanctuary, entered from the gallery.  In the first room is the Aaron Plishner Children’s Collection, with books for all ages from toddler to young adults.

In the second room is the Rabbi George and Emmy Vida Reference Section, the Torah Study section, and the general adult sections, with books on all Jewish subjects­—e.g., holidays, lifecycle, history, philosophy and theology, cookbooks, and literature, fiction and poetry.

New books are being added to the collections in both rooms all the time.  The adult collection has a card catalogue according to authors and titles, to help in finding books.  The library is open when the office is open, and almost all books can be checked out
