The Shaffer family is opening their late father’s vast and eclectic library to the use of participants of the International Kinus Hashluchim that is currently taking place in Brooklyn, NY.
Their late father, R’ Gedalia Shaffer OBM, was a known scholar who spent his life amassing knowledge through endless learning and exploring the world. He was always available to share insight and guidance.
His family members recently reorganized the library that contains thousands of books of all genres and languages. It includes volumes of commentaries on Torah and Gemara, to halachic responsa and Kabbalah, Chakira and Hashkafa.
“It’s a very pleasant space for learning as well as meetings,” said his wife Mrs. Bronya Shaffer, a noted lecturer on Jewish women’s issues and as a personal counselor and mentor for women.
Shaffer said the library at 711 Montgomery Street will be open this Shabbos morning from 6:30 AM and on for Shluchim wishing to begin the day with learning on their own or with a colleague or friend.
The titles in the library were recently catalogues and can be searched at http://shafferlibrary.blogspot.com/
