Upcoming Classes

AJL Classroom: Programming & Outreach for Synagogue Libraries
Mondays, November 15 & 22, 2021
4:30PM PT / 7:30PM ET (90 minutes)
$150 nonmembers / $75 members
Instructor: Rachel Kamin

We are the People of the Book and the library should be the central hub of the synagogue, supporting the clergy, faculty, and staff; the preschool, religious school, and camp; and the congregational and larger community.  Explore various programming and outreach ideas that can connect the entire synagogue community to the library and learn how to partner with other synagogue professionals and lay leaders to expand the library’s reach and relevance.  We’ll learn together from our past successes and failures, brainstorm ways to strengthen our existing efforts, and develop innovative and engaging new initiatives. 

Members and nonmembers welcome. Member rate will be reflected by the end of the registration process.
