“T h e Jewish Book She lf”
Leader:
Fanny Goldstein,
Librarian, West End Branch, Boston Public Library
T h i s discussion was one of the features of the W om en ’s Annua l Conference
on Jewish Education.
Th er e was also a special Jewish Book Exh ib it .
“For the past decade the Hebrew Teachers College has been conducting
festivals in honor o f the Jewish Book on Lag Ba ’Omer. T h e admission charge
has been the price o f a book; m inimum: $2.00.
“Between 150-200 women usually attend. Th e r e are a book exh ib i t , a
special pageant, addresses and discussions. Luncheon is served.
“A sum o f $750-$ 1000 is thus added to the library fund o f the Hebrew
Teachers College. An impor tant by-product is a better understand ing o f the
place o f the Jewish book in Jewish life. Every year some new wr ink le is
added to the interpretat ion o f Jewish literature . Tho s e who have attended
these gatherings year after year va lue them h igh ly .”
