July Doorpost Column

Hello library lovers!

We have had an incredible month at the library, with the addition of a special collection, a successful Deli Man event, and wrapping up the school year smoothly.

Please stop in to check out our grand new display, showing off some precious rare items as well as books that are special to our community. Thanks to library donations from you, we were able to give these items a beautiful home as feature pieces in our collection.

The library’s movie night was a resounding success thanks to the team who helped me put it together. The movie Deli Man provided the perfect backdrop for our deli night– it told a great story of the Jewish deli’s evolution throughout the last couple centuries in America, with star interviews and amazing real-life characters.

Don't Bite Your Tongue

Don’t Bite Your Tongue by Dr. Ruth Nemzoff

Following this yummy night of fun we are planning our next author’s visit– please join us for afternoon tea with Dr. Ruth Nemzoff on Wednesday, July 29th at 4:00. She will be discussing the topic of her book Don’t Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships With Your Adult Children. To reserve a spot, please RSVP to librarian@templeisraelnh.org or (603)436-5301 ext. 25.

Deli Man @ Temple Israel Portsmouth, June 4th

The good news? We at the Shaines Library have had an overwhelming response to the upcoming Deli Man event, with 70 people planning to attend!

The bad news is that we now must close reservations. You may, however, join us for the movie at 7 even without a reservation! We also have more exciting programs in the works, so please look for more this summer.

We are happy to welcome a number of guests from our neighbors at Ahavas Achim in Newburyport, with fun giveaways provided by the Deli Man himself, delicious food from Larry Levine’s, the acclaimed documentary, and a fun time with an amazing community.

Special thanks to the Cultural Endowment Fund for its support, and to Lorrie and Dick Grossman for arranging the catering.
