Thank you for your donations!
The Sisterhood Furnishings Fund was used to purchase two tables for the Goldsmith & Spear Library. Please consider a donation to this Fund to assure Sisterhood can continue to support CBI.
The library needs you!
AMY R. GOLDSMITH/ SPEAR RESEARCH LIBRARY Committee, which was created under the Sisterhood umbrella, has completed its work to modernize the library and to create a community space for congregational engagement.
A newly designed library is now awaiting members of CBI. With the work of a dedicated group of volunteers, the room has been cleaned, re-arranged, and organized in a way that will make it easy to find great reading. We will soon have new outlets so you can charge your phone or laptop while in the library.
We will have interesting programs throughout the year, so look for our Special Sunday happenings in the library below. We also hope that many temple committees will meet in the room as well. When we receive new books, they will be listed here, in the box on the right, and we will be adding many excellent web resources. Look for the new books on the rolling cart in the library. This is your library.......enjoy!
CBI's Library Catalog is Online! You can browse the Library's extensive collection online from home or anywhere and search for a specific book or for books on a specific topic. There is an abundance of resources and information includuing websites of Jewish interest shown under Judaica resources on the webpage. Check it out and explore!
