Special books in the Library

Enciclopedia D'Eivissa I Formentera 

As you may know, my researches into secret Jews started well over 30 years ago in the smaller Balearic Islands of Spain, known as the Pitiuses Islands, Ibiza and Formetera, where my husband Leslie (a"h) and I found vestiges of Jewish life that had continued un-interupted, but MOST secretly, for the 500 years since 1492.
The Baleares Autonomous Government has taken extra notice of my work and publications. It most generously translated much of my printed work into Catalan, and in addition,  presented the Casa Shalom Library with a full edition of the most prestigious, and quite expensive 15-volume Enciclopedia D'Eivissa I Formentera. So far we have received Volumes 1-10, those already published, and the remainder will arrive as soon as they are made available.
We regard this as a great honour that Casa Shalom should be singled out for such a presentation. Owning this set enhances our Library, and it is certain to be the only set available in Israel, and maybe the whole of the Middle East.
