Three Amazing Jewish Books

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Marc Michael Epstein with Pipe

Three Amazing Jewish Books will cover three topics:


Thursday October 7: The Brick and the Book: The Barcelona Haggadah
In which the famed but bumbling detective Marc Michael Epstein of Vassar College discovers that you can look at something for thirty years and have no idea what you are seeing.


Thursday October 14: A Mysterious Absence: The Rothschild Pentateuch
A never-before-seen manuscript, a mysterious erasure, and the terrible history of an extraordinarily beautiful book.


Thursday October 21, 2021
Reading the World Bilingually: The Duke of Sussex Ashkenazic Pentateuch
You thought Jews in the Middle Ages were ghettoized and shielded from the wider world in their hermetically sealed universe of faith and observance? Think again.”

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.
