BAS Robert Kutner Library

Library BooksThe Kutner Library was put back into shape with the help of three great BAS members. Todah Raba to Jenn Topp, Nanette Neadle, and Jill Nathanson who made up the committee and deserve a lot of credit from everyone at BAS. When you see these ladies, let them know how much we appreciate their hard work and dedication.

The library now offers traditional favorites and volumes for religious and personal study, as well as new, modern children's selections for our youngest of readers.

A computer desk and computer have been welcome additions and we are well on our way in was making the library an integral part of the religious school curriculum.

Financial assistance for this project is provided by the family of Robert Kutner (of blessed memory).

Library Update for February 2011, contributed by Sheila Goldberg

Our library is being updated.  We hope to have a major part of the work done in the next couple of months. Most important is the catalogue listings.  They will all be on line.  You will be able to find a listing of all books after entering the Bnai Abraham website, and a clicking on “Bnai Abraham Library.”

We are in the process of converting from the Dewey system to the Library of Congress System of cataloguing.  I will try to give a brief book review each month. I would also like to thank publicly Rabbi Stein for the momentous amount of work that he has put in to get this project moving.

THE RETURN by Sonia Levitin

This book would be of interest to teenage readers.  It is told by a 12-year-old  girl, Desta, who lives in a poor Jewish village in the mountains of Ethiopia, where the Jews were terrorized and yearning for freedom.  Her story details her flight, together with her brother Joas, and her 9-year-old younger sister to reach The Promised Land, in particular, Jerusalem.  The book is rich in detail about the life of Yemenite Jews living in the mountain villages especially under communism, and also their hazardous journey.

 I read this book with great interest since I was very familiar with the Magic Carpet flights of rescue in 1948 and 1949.  Levitin calls the rescue mission “Operation Moses”. The book has a variety of interests, romance, tragedy, suspense and excitement, as well as providing a view of life in another culture. Although it is not a new book (published in 1987) I highly recommend it. Even as an adult I was fascinated by her story. 

SOTAH by Naomi Ragan

If you have not already read this book, let me recommend it highly, especially today in light of the religious and cultural problems in Israel. I do not want to spoil the story for you by telling the plot.  Suffice to say that this is the story of a woman from within the boundaries of Israel's ultra Orthodox Communities. Dina, our heroine, married to Judah, struggles to maintain her marriage while desiring freedom and fulfillment in her life,  It is an exciting read, full of pathos and sympathy for Dina. I highly recommend this book to any who have not already read it.  Naomi Ragan is an author of many books, some of which have been most widely read.
