A Journey Across the Jewish Past: Inside The JTS Library’s Rare Book Collection
February 24, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Hidden in the nooks and crannies of libraries and museums across the world are clues to an often-surprising Jewish past: a 15th-century Italian woman’s siddur that includes a special prayer thanking God for “creating her as a woman”; a Haggadah from a Nazi concentration camp; manuscripts from the Court Jews enmeshed in the intrigues of European kings.
Join Chancellor Shuly Rubin Schwartz and Dr. David Kraemer to tour The JTS Library’s treasures in one of the world’s largest collections of Hebrew books and manuscripts, opening windows into centuries of Jewish life, thought, and creativity.
Held in partnership with the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center.
