Jewish Print Culture in 19th Century North Africa

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel

This talk, “On the Altar of the Press: Jewish Print Culture in 19th Century North Africa,” with Dr. Noam Sienna, will examine Jewish printing and North African book culture in the 19th century, demonstrating how book-making was a primary link between Jewish communities in North Africa and their coreligionists across Mediterranean shores.

The second half of the 19th century saw enormous transformations in Jewish life all over the world. In North Africa, this period was marked by the development of a local Jewish printing industry, competing with the well-established Jewish presses of Europe and the Ottoman Empire.
