The Frenkel family dedicated a permanent collection of Holocaust books to the Wyckoff public library on May 31. The library is celebrating its centennial, and the Frenkels have been in Wyckoff for 50 years. Many local leaders, including Rabbi Joshua Waxman of Temple Beth Rishon, were at the dedication.

The collection honors the memory of Steve and Denise Frenkel, who escaped Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia, moved to Wyckoff in 1973, and lived there until 2003. It’s donated by their children, Michael Frenkel and Liz Reingold of Wyckoff. The collection includes books for use by patrons of the library and library book clubs, as well as special collections available for students at Eisenhower Middle School, Ramapo High School, and Indian Hills High School. For more information, call the library at (201) 891-4866.
