Puttin’ On Shabbat – Shalom Rav / Blue Skies
Congregation Beth Israel and our Hyman Judah Schachtel Library – accredited at the advanced level by the Association of Jewish Libraries – is a prime resource for Meyerland Jewish Library.
Our Houston-based synagogue is home of one of the most extensive collections of Jewish literature, and attracts scholars from all across the country. The Hyman Judah Schachtel Library, a Jewish library in Meyerland, holds Jewish historical texts that date back to the 1800s, providing great context for those who are using the library for research.
Extensive collection: The Hyman Judah Schachtel Library offers an extensive collection of works — many of the books have specific Jewish interest but others are written by Jewish authors and might be a good selection for casual reading. There are also detailed records on the history of the congregation.
Children’s books: Our Meyerland Jewish Library also features a children’s section in hopes that they will find our collections entertaining and also informative on the Jewish faith.
We make our library accessible to members and the community at large. We want to put our collection on display and offer the valuable resources for individuals that might be learning about Judaism for the first time.
We also host special events, such as guest speakers, book clubs, or social mixers and networking events. From browsing our Jewish art gallery in Meyerland to simply finding a good book for leisure time, the Hyman Judah Schachtel Library is worth visiting.
