Starter Jewish Libraries for High School Students


Students who choose to attend a Jewish high school after graduating from a public or private middle school receive a gift of a starter Jewish library. This library consists of nine Jewish texts and references – all in Hebrew/English or English – including the Bible as well as classic and contemporary books on basic Judaism, the holidays and Israel. The gift of these books is intended to help plant the seeds of Jewish learning at this milestone in the Jewish educational journey of these students and their families.  In 2015-16, 256 students from 24 schools received starter Jewish libraries.
