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

Come to one or all of our meetings, held in the Lainer Learning Center’s Library Classroom and facilitated by Lisa Silverman, Library Director.

This season we are reading the following titles:


Wednesday, October 7th, 7:30 pm In the Unlikely EventIn the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume

Three planes crash in a small town in New Jersey over the course of just two short months. This actually happened in Elizabeth, New Jersey in the early 1950s, when beloved children’s author Judy Blume was a young girl, experiencing the horror firsthand. Who, or what, was responsible—Communists? Martians? Blume travels back to that time and tells the more intimate stories within the larger one, to help us better comprehend the incomprehensible.

Wednesday November 4th, 7:30 pm Single Jewish Male Seeking Soul MateSingle Jewish Male Seeking Soul Mate by Letty Cottin Pogrebin

Feminist icon Letty Cottin Pogrebin's second novel follows Zach Levy, the left-leaning son of Holocaust survivors who promises his mother that he'll marry within the tribe. But when Zach falls for Cleo, an African American activist grappling with her own inherited trauma, he must reconcile the family he loves with the woman who might be his soul mate.

Wednesday December 9th, 7:30 pm Electric CityElectric City by Elizabeth Rosner

The peak of Autumn, 1965: Sophie Levine, the daughter of a General Electric company man, one of the many scientists who escaped Europe just before World War II, is coming of age just as the town is gasping its last breaths. Into her orbit drifts Henry Van Curler, the favored son of one of Electric City’s founding Dutch families, as well as Native American Martin Longboat. This new generation will face both the history of their town and their own uncertain future, struggling to bridge the gap between the old world and the new.

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.
