                         NEWS RELEASE


November, 2008 

The Association of Jewish Libraries has released its new "Israel@60" suggested reading list, with over thirty titles on Israel for adults and children. The list includes fiction and non-fiction, and offers a brief description of each book. Websites and videos on Israel for adults and children are listed as well.The Israel@60 reading list is available in pdf format on the Association of Jewish Libraries website at www.jewishlibraries.org."Books about Israel are written from so many points of view, some friendly, some not," said Susan Dubin, President of the Association of Jewish Libraries. "With the sixtieth birthday of the state of Israel being celebrated this year, we felt the time was right to showcase books with a positive view of the country's history and achievements."

The Israel@60 reading list was compiled by Association of Jewish Libraries member Andrea Rapp, librarian at the Isaac M. Wise Temple in Cincinnati, Ohio, and an expert on the topic of Israel. A Judaica librarian for over twenty years, Andrea holds a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in History from Northwestern University, and a Master's in Library Science from the University of Minnesota. Her article on  Israel-related literature, "Lies in the Library," was published in Reform Jewish Magazine (summer 2005).

This is an outstanding resource to learn more about Israel!
