High Holiday Reading Lists

Our esteemed librarian, Arlene Ratzabi, created several lists for WJC families to explore the High Holidays through reading. All of the books included in the lists below are available from the Hendel Library. 

In order for our synagogue community to take advantage of this rich collection of High Holidays literature in the Hendel Library without visiting in person at this time, please take advantage of our curbside delivery program. Questions should be sent to

High Holiday Books for Children

High Holiday Books for Youth

High Holiday Books for Adult Readers
