Ariel Goldman Memorial Library

Located across from the playground is the Ariel Goldman Library. Our library is self-serve and is open during religious school and available at all times by stopping by the Temple office. You'll find a great variety of Jewish materials for enjoyment or research. Our library is always growing and changing; new books and periodicals are added to the library on an ongoing basis. Our library is also a great place to relax and read while your children are attending Religious School classes. We are especially proud of our library, which was a generous gift to our congregation by Lynn and Steve Goldman in loving memory of their daughter, Ariel.
