The Jewish Youth Library serves the religious and the non-observant, the affiliated and non-affiliated, young and old and all in between.

We reach out to all who are in need and assist them with their financial and emotional needs as well as serving the community at large by offering programs and classes for all ages. From toddlers to seniors, all have a place and feel welcome at the Jewish Youth Library.

We are committed to strengthening Jewish identity, unity and commitment. We cannot do this alone. Jewish Youth Library is personally responsible for raising its entire budget – and relies on the involvement of people like yourself who appreciate the very important role it plays in Jewish education in Ottawa.

Donate In-Kind

However, due to the ever-evolving electronic marketplace, we need to be sure that the equipment is relatively up-to-date.
