The Blumenthal Library

The Sinai Temple Blumenthal Library is one of the finest temple libraries in the nation. We have over 30,000 books, audiobooks, DVD's, eBooks, and other materials, for adults and children. We also lend pre-loaded Kindles after a permission form is signed. We are open during the school year, from late August to the end of June. We are one of the few temple libraries (of any denomination) that have received advanced accreditation by the National Association of Jewish Libraries. Library privileges are free to all temple members, regardless of age. Books and DVD’s are checked out for two weeks, and audiobooks for three weeks. Children in our affiliated schools come to the library on a regular basis and are allowed to borrow materials according to grade level guidelines. Renewals are easily permitted by phone, email, or in person

The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard streetThe Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gillman
April 30, 2015 7:30 p.m. in library classroom.

In 1913, Malka Treynovsky flees Russia for New York with her family. Shortly after, Malka is crippled and abandoned in the street and is taken in by an Italian ices peddler. She manages to survive through cunning and inventiveness and slowly, she transforms herself into Lillian Dunkle, "The Ice Cream Queen.” Lillian's rise to fame and fortune spans seventy years and is inextricably linked to the course of American history itself. Conniving, profane, and irreverent, she is a supremely complex woman who prefers a good stiff drink to an ice cream cone. And when her past begins to catch up with her, everything she has spent her life building is at stake.

The BetrayersThe Betrayers by David Bezmozgis
June 4, 2015 7:30 p.m.

The story depicts one fraught, momentous day in the life of Baruch Kotler, a Soviet Jewish dissident who now finds himself a disgraced Israeli politician. When he refuses to back down from a contrary but principled stand regarding the settlements in the West Bank, his political opponents expose his affair with a mistress decades his junior, and the besieged couple escapes to Yalta, where Kotler comes face-to-face with the former friend whose denunciation sent him to the Gulag almost forty years earlier.

Sinai Temple is a partnership between its clergy, staff, lay leaders and devoted members who are committed to supporting the tradition and vision of Sinai Temple. Your gift to Sinai Temple will enable us to continue these holy tasks for years to come. Thank you for helping us to bring our history, our beliefs and our promise to a new generation.
We are a member of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We aim to provide a framework within which men can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the history and values of our people and in which they can make tangible contributions of their talents and treasure in an environment of good fellowship.
Our goal at Sinai Temple is to create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program that is a spiritual and religious experience counseling child and family to God, the Jewish people and to each other.
The Sinai Temple Israel Center is the first synagogue center that provides programmatic resources and avenues for Los Angeles Jewry to establish cultural, professional, spiritual, and economic ties to the land of Israel.
