Hyman A. Rubin Library

Our Library

The Hyman A. Rubin Library is our source for everything Jewish in literature; it contains not only the latest edition of your favorite author, it also holds a great wealth of important books from the past. From Kabbalah to Israel, the library has it all. 

The Rubin Library is open when the building is open, and there is a convenient self-checkout system that is used. If you need further help, our library volunteers are available on Thursdays. (Please call ahead to confirm a volunteer is available, if you expect to need help.)

Stop by the library…take a look. Enjoy reading, learning, or perusing periodicals while relaxing in a comfortable setting.

So browse – but more importantly, borrow – books. Our new ones consist of categories as far-reaching as Israel, history, theology, children’s, humor, Yiddish, fiction, and health and wellness.

Wireless connectivity on your laptop is available while visiting the Rubin Library.
