Event Status
Public program in conjunction with the exhibition "500 Years of Treasures from Oxford"
Speaker: Brad Sabin Hill, former Fellow in Hebrew Bibliography, Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies

Oxford is famed for the ancient books and manuscripts in its libraries, which also hold some of the greatest Hebrew collections in the world. Less known is the role of Oxford in the study and dissemination of texts in other Jewish languages, such as Yiddish, Judeo-Spanish, Judeo-Persian, and Judeo-Provencal. Most extraordinary is the case of the printing at Oxford, in the mid-17th century, of the first Judeo-Arabic book.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition 500 Years of Treasures from Oxford. For more information on the exhibition, please visit cjh.org/oxford.
