Love & TreasureLove and Treasure by Ayelet Waldman December 11, 2014

A novel of contraband masterpieces, tragic love, and the unexpected legacies of forgotten crimes, Love and Treasure weaves a tale around the fascinating, true history of the Hungarian Gold Train in the Second World War.

 

To Rise Again at a Decent HourTo Rise Again at a Decent Hour by Joshua Ferris February 5, 2015

Paul O'Rourke is a man made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it. He's a zealous dentist addicted to his iPhone, a rabid Red Sox fan devastated by their victories, and an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. Then someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and as his quest to learn why his identity has been stolen deepens, he is forced to confront his troubled past.

Facilitated by Lisa Silverman, Library Director

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.
