Conference Proceeding: As It Is Written: Highlights of an Exhibition

This lecture will feature highlights of the Judaica Exhibition displayed at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library of the University of Toronto early in 2015. The exhibition includes items spanning 1100 years from the 10th century to the 21st, with at least one item from every intervening century. Included are medieval biblical, halakhic and liturgical manuscripts, one of the earliest copies of the Zohar, a tribute album for Moses Montefiore, one of the earliest printed items of Canadiana and much more, all taken from the holdings of the Fisher Library.
