Virtual Tour of JTS’ Rare Book Room (Zoom)


May 11, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Take a virtual lunchtime tour of the Jewish Theological Seminary’s rare book room! The library at Manhattan’s JTS contains the most impressive collection of rare historical documents in the United States — hundreds of ancient Jewish marriage contracts, thousands of unique manuscripts, and tens of thousands of fragments recovered in Egypt from the famed Cairo Genizah. Join the library’s director, Prof. David Kraemer, as he shows us around and discusses the extraordinary collection of works housed on their fifth floor.


This event is sponsored by the Women’s Organization of Stephen Wise Free Synagogue.

Every other week, Rabbi Ammi Hirsch hosts intellectually honest conversations unpacking current events through the lens of Jewish wisdom. Unbound by politics and untethered by party lines, Ammi and his expert guests discuss everything from race and antisemitism to all the other issues that keep you up at night.
