Aileen Grossberg, Librarian

Check out the display of Genesis related books found in the Jacobs Library. As we begin the Torah cycle , you may find new insights into the oft told tales of human emotion, intrigue, and tangled relationships.

Formats are as varied as the stories: graphic novels, heavily researched tomes, poetry and for the younger set, of course, picture book interpretations of some very adult themes.

We often think of Bible STORIES as only for children, for we may remember the sanitized fairytale like retellings of our own childhoods. These versions often were not even edited Torah texts but midrashim, stories about stories, attempts to fill in the holes in the text.

Bible stories for children are shelved have the call  number J220.95 on their spines.

Bible related books for adults are in the 220  section.

And so it begins again. A good book is worth rereading- and the Torah is certainly a Good Book.
