In 1999, the congregation opened a lending library of Jewish books and educational materials in collaboration with the York County Jewish Community Council.  The library is dedicated to Samuel Osher, a long-time supporter of Etz Chaim. The library contains over 1200 Jewish books, videos and DVDs. Some were donated, others were purchased with financial contributions.

Please come in and check out our library during these hours, or contact us to inquire about our library.

 Library Hours:

  • Thursdays 3:45 – 6 pm (except for school vacations)
  • Fridays 6:00 – 8 pm (on potluck supper dates)
