Free Lecture in English from the National Library of Israel: "The Early Modern Memorbuch: Memory, Charity and Community" #announcements #events

Almost every European Jewish community, whether large or small, possessed a special book in which community members were memorialized, both in writing and in synagogue liturgy.

These "Memorbucher" are full of historical treasures, especially when we explore who was included in the volumes, who was omitted, how men and women were remembered, and what these manuscripts reveal about charity, gender, and community in early modern Europe.

Join us this coming Monday, November 30th at 7pm Israel time / 5pm London time / 12pm EST for

"The Early Modern Memorbuch: Memory, Charity and Community"

A special talk focusing on two Memorbucher from the National Library of Israel collections, one from Worms and one from Frankfurt am Main.

With Professor Debra Kaplan, Israel and Golda Koschitzky Department of Jewish History and Contemporary Jewry, and Director of the Halpern Center for the Study of Jewish Self-Perception, Bar Ilan University
