This library, a resource for the Jewish children of Houston, has been established by the family of Leon Weiner, a man who loved reading throughout his life and was known as a child to check out books from the library many times a week. To learn more about him, and see a video in which he discusses his Jewish values that guided his life, see Leon Weiner. The family is grateful to the Houston Kollel and the Young Israel of Houston for hosting the library and to the many community members who have contributed to its establishment and growth.
