Jewish knowledge and the custom of setting aside time periodically
for the reading of the Jewish Classics as well as contemporary

to spiritualize the atmosphere in the Jewish home by assigning
a place of honor in it to a shelf or case of Jewish books, and dis-
cussing their contents informally around the family table.

collections in libraries of synagogues, schools, Centers and other
Jewish institutions, and utilizing them to enrich the programs of
clubs, study circles, formal classes, discussion groups, etc.

reciprocal interfaith understanding and cooperation.
