Koreman Library

Our synagogue contains a wonderful library with a wealth of materials for adults and children alike. The topics range from the history of Israel to Jewish folktales and fairy tales to ethics and philosophy. There are many volumes of the Talmud available for study. The library is maintained by volunteer Fred Lerner. Please contact him at fred.lerner@dartmouth.edu if you wish to donate any Jewish books to the library, a form of tzedakah that is always appreciated here. Please do not drop off your unwanted books without checking with Fred first.

In addition to the main library upstairs, there is also a delightful children’s library in the basement of the Roth Center. Anyone is welcome to read the books with their children or to play any of the games that belong to Kol Ha’Emek, the UVJC including many educational Jewish and Hebrew games.

Members of Kol Ha’Emek, the UVJC are welcome to check out books from the Koreman Library. Please visit to see everything that is available to foster the Jewish learning of you and your children.
