Resource Center / Library General Info


The JGSGW genealogy library and resource center is located at the B'nai Israel Congregation, 6301 Montrose Road, Rockville, Maryland 20852. It is co-located with the Chod Media Center on the second floor.

The collection consists of 3-ring binders, books, CDs/DVDs, fiche, maps, and periodicals (magazines and newsletters).  Additionally a few computers are available for you to do online genealogy research, although we do not have subscriptions.

Resource Center Hours

For Weekday access, please make prior arrangements with the Librarian to schedule time; we are closed Jewish and Federal holidays.  After most JGSGW meetings at B'nai Israel, the Library will be open 3 PM - 4:30 PM 
The Library is non-circulating -- for reference only, and is open to members of JGSGW and B'nai Israel members with a B'nai Israel library card.
Included in the collection are about 300 recorded lectures on subjects of particular interest to Jewish genealogists. Most of the lectures are about one-hour in length and may be listened to at one of the computer workstations located in the Chod Media Center.
Special appointments may be possible to arrange; to request an appointment, contact the JGSGW Librarian.
