Mollie L. Berch Library

The Mollie L. Berch library plays a major role in our synagogue’s efforts to enhance understanding of Jewish beliefs and holiday celebrations, provide information for life cycle events and practices, increase spirituality, promote lifelong reading and learning about Judaism, and provide access to sacred texts in English and Hebrew. Our library serves our congregants, their children, school faculty, clergy and staff. 

We have upwards of 7,000 volumes, with strong emphasis on:

Children’s books
• Women’s studies
• Biographies and memoirs
• Bible commentary
• Fiction, including Israeli novels and short stories, in English
• The Holocaust
• World History
• American History

We also have a number of more narrow collections in the following areas:

• Meditation, Mysticism, Kabbalah
• Lifecycle
• Mysteries
• Yiddish works in translation
• Sports
• Jewish art
• Poetry
• Cookbooks

Unlike some large synagogue libraries that are locked, the Library is open all the time and any member of TI may check out a book including on Shabbat. Most of our holdings can be found in the TI Library Catalog. Take a look by clicking here!
