Kobe Synagogue Books

Many were long due for genizah and the rest needed to be sorted and arranged. Who better for such a task than someone – viewed by some as deranged in this respect – who catalogues his own books?

So my son and I spent a few hours at the synagogue. Below are some before and after pictures:
