The Cairo Genizah: Exploring a Forgotten World Plus

Thursdays, 03-26-2020 (4 sessions)
10:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Online •



This course includes an additional 4 classes of Melton Cairo Genizah: Exploring a Forgotten World. The course will reveal how a collection of worn-out scraps, fragments of texts and other manuscripts and documents more than 1,000 years old open an otherwise hidden era of history. We will learn the story of the Genizah (a storeroom for timeworn sacred manuscripts and documents), as well as examine selected contents of the Genizah. Through translations of the original texts, the course will explore the daily lives and behaviors of Jewish men, women and families living along the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages.

Please note: If this is your first Melton Genizah class, there will be an extra fee for materials. Please call Judy Kaminsky for information: 678-812-3723.

Instructor: Dr. Shelley Buxbaum
