Beth Israel Library News



Once My Name Was Sara. Marsha Fader and I went to the April 8th AJL meeting and heard Betty Grebenschikoff tell the amazing story of her family’s flight from Germany to China in 1939
without visas or passports. We were engaged by her indomitable spirit, her humor and zest for life. Read her memoir and you willunderstand the title.


Repentances, a stand-alone psychological suspense novel, by Annette Meyers, set in 1936 in the Jewish immigrant community of New York City. This new addition is a threefold winner for the library: 1. Jewish female author, 2. Mystery story, and 3. LARGE PRINT.
