In preparation for our move to 90th Street, the Rothschild Library will be closed as of April 4. To return library books, please put them in the book drop outside the library in the Gallery.

Our temporary home at 90th Street includes a lovely library space where the Park Avenue Synagogue Library will reopen at the end of June. Until then, much of our children’s collection is being housed at the Eli M. Black Lifelong Learning Center so that materials will be accessible to the Congregational School during the last weeks of the school year. For this month, visit to locate children’s books, and come to the Congregational School office to check them out.

For more information, contact Marga Hirsch at or x127.

Just for kids
Kids’ Shabbat Book Basket
Every Shabbat, look for the book basket just outside the sanctuary with Jewish books for children of all ages to look at while sitting quietly in their seats in the synagogue. Please return the books to the basket after services so that others may read them next week.
