About My Library
The Shaar Shalom Library has been built over the life of our congregation, with books purchased and donated to the synagogue for more than 60 years. We currently have over 1,500 titles on topics ranging from Jewish fiction, the Holocaust, holidays, baking, history, art, children’s books, religion, books in Hebrew and Yiddish and many more! We also have books donated by family and friends to the Laura Herschorn Memorial Library, the Sylvia Herschorn Collection, the Leonia Falk Yiddish Collection, and other rare books. We have a section of books on death and dying and the grieving process from a Jewish perspective, and books for those involved in conversion to Judaism.

The Library is overseen by a small group of volunteer members of the congregation, who look after it on behalf of the whole congregation, under the general supervision of the Board. Look through our Library, and it’s like looking through the history of the Shaar Shalom – you’ll find many books with inscriptions that were donated on special occasions like bar and bat mitzvahs, birthdays, and other special occasions in the life of the synagogue.
About Me
Founded in 1953, Shaar Shalom Congregation serves the needs of Halifax’s Conservative Jewish community. Through its affiliation with the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), the Shaar maintains close ties with the Conservative and Masorti movements in Canada, the United States, Israel and around the globe.

Shaar Shalom is an egalitarian congregation where both women and men participate fully in the spiritual, ritual and social life of the community. We warmly welcome people of all ages, socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, and abilities. We are proudly a community comprised of Jews by birth and Jews by choice alike.
