Newsletter January 2015

Dear Reader

I am pleased to open the year 2015, which is marked by innovation and expansion. During the coming year extensive technological changes will be made, both in the new catalog which is in advanced stages of development, and in the Library’s new application for Android devices, ‘Accessible Reader,’ which was developed by Shmulik Ne’eman and which is to be launched soon.

It’s the same love (Zo Ota Ha’ahava)

The aroma of donuts, the variety of shows all around us, the candle-lighting, tell us that that it is holiday time again: Hanukkah, The Festival of Lights. Hanukkah celebrates the rededication of the Temple and the miracle of the oil lamp that lasted for 8 days, and the days are traditionally termed ‘days of thanksgiving’ to thank God for the miracle bestowed on the people of Israel.
