Donate Your Books!

May 17, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

at Cong. Beth El

Do you have books on Jewish history, religion or culture that you’d like to donate?  A newly-restored Jewish cultural center in the Azores has asked for our help in obtaining books.  Please bring your books to our program at Congregation Beth El-Atereth Israel on Sunday, May 17 from noon to 4 pm. Persons wishing to donate books who can’t get to the program this Sunday should contact Candice to make other arrangements.

A synagogue building in the Azores, founded in 1836 by Sephardic merchants from Morocco, has been restored and recently rededicated.   Although there is no longer a Jewish community in the city of Ponta Delgada, there are plans to use the synagogue building for a cultural learning center including a museum and library.  Dr. Jose Mello, the on-site historian, requests donations of books on Jewish religion, culture and history.   You are encouraged to write your name inside your donated books.
