The library is an inviting space to search for a book or just sit comfortably and read a magazine or study. The online catalog makes it easy to find a specific title or browse the stacks. 
Books may be borrowed by signing them out in the open loose-leaf binder and putting the card from the book into the plastic box; both the box and binder are on the bookcase to your immediate right when entering the library. The library is open whenever the building is open.

If you never had the chance to celebrate a Bat or Bar Mitzvah as a child, now is your chance!

For questions or more information about the next class, please contact Rabbi Friedman at mfriedman@tiwestport.org

Judas, by Amos Oz

This is a scintillating novel set in 1950s Jerusalem that blends a tender coming-of-age story with a thought-provoking study of betrayal. The book combines an exploration of the motivation of the apostle Judas and a story of “error, desire and unrequited love.”

Orly Mendelson, Director of Education, will be co-leading the discussion for this book.
