ABOUT THE CYBRARY
A cybrary is a categorized collection
of electronic resources. Unlike an online library catalog, a cybrary
does not simply point you to a resource; it provides the resource
itself. In addition to the physical collection housed in the synagogue,
we have brought the library into the 21st century by bringing it
into cyberspace. Our cybrary is an adventure in learning
about Torah, Jewish heritage, and varied topics of Jewish interest.
If you need a dvar Torah, a kosher restaurant, or an online Jewish
encyclopedia, simply click on the links that interest
you. They will take you to the most fascinating and exciting Jewish
sites on the Web.

as Maven and Hareshima, mix personal pages with institutional ones.
And its very difficult to determine the credentials and authority
of the authors. A cybrary consists of material selected, vetted
and arranged by librarians who apply the same criteria to web pages
they do to printed books.
