Conference Proceeding: Honoured and Venerable Sir…

University College London holds on loan from the Montefiore Endowment a stunning collection of tributes presented to Sir Moses Montefiore (1784-1885) and his wife Judith (d.1862). They have recently been digitized and transcribed and are freely available online. The tributes are both beautiful objects in themselves and also a rich source of information about Jewish communities around the world. This illustrated talk will give the background to the collection and present some highlights, as well as discussing the process of digitization.
