Ukraine’s Jewish Printed Books and Its People
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
From the founders of the Hasidic movement to legends of modern Hebrew literature, for centuries Ukraine was a center of Jewish print culture.
Jewish printed books contain testimonies of a range of events from Ukrainian history, while also serving as companions to everyday life in the country. Handwritten notes scribbled in the margins tell some fascinating stories…
During this lecture, we will explore the history of Jewish printed books in Ukraine, as well the evolution of reading practices over time and the development of modern collections.
Join us online for the next event in our “Ukrainian-Jewish Voices” series:
