Description
More than 1,000 years of Jewish history are encompassed in this exhibition catalog of rare books, manuscripts, and Torah scrolls from such locations as Poland, Egypt, Yemen, and Amsterdam, now housed in public and private collections in Philadelphia. The 75 color photographs reveal the beauty and antiquity of these objects, while David Stern discusses what is known about their history and significance. Highlights include a miniature scroll containing the Book of Esther; a prayer book whose silver binding depicts Jonah being swallowed by the whale; and a fragment of a Passover Haggadah from a millennium ago.
