Libraries

Welcome To Lippman Library. The Abraham Lippman Library, the main circulating library at Rodef Shalom, is a 11,000-plus item repository for literature and learning resources of interest to all members of Rodef Shalom. The library is accedited by the Association of Jewish Libraries.

The library is on the first floor of the Temple, adjacent to the Commons Area. Within the Lippman Library are the Glick Children’s Library—for Preschool and Religious School students—and the Broff Youth Area, containing our young adult and reference collections. The Lippman Library also circulates the Kaplan-Lefkowitz video collection.

A schedule of library hours is posted weekly. The library is open to the public, but borrowing is limited to Rodef Shalom members and families enrolled in the Family Center Preschool.
