The Robert E. Levinson Memorial Library was named in memory of Robert E. Levinson (z”l), a San Jose State University professor, writer, Jewish educator, and Beth David cantor.

Adult fiction and young adult books are in the board room (between the Beit Tefillah/small sanctuary and the Beit Midrash). The adult non-fiction and reference books are in the Beit Midrash. We have a broad selection of Jewish reference material, fiction and non-fiction books, and periodicals, always including the latest releases, for adults and teenagers. The library is normally open when the synagogue is open.

We are currently closed because the synagogue is closed due to Covid restrictions.
