A Great Assemblage*

An Exhibit of Judaica in honor of the opening of the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale.
* 1 Kings 8:65

Sterling Memorial Library Fall 1995

This exhibit is a joint effort of the many divisions of the Yale University Library that contain Judaica.
The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library contributed manuscripts and prints from 18th-century Italy and early 20th-century Palestine. Of particular interest are the ketubahs (illuminated marriage contracts) from the Sholem Asch Collection. Many important works in Hebrew and Yiddish on display come from the Judaica Collection of the Sterling Memorial Library. The Babylonian Collection, Map Collection, Manuscripts and Archives, and the Art and Architecture Library also contributed material. Yale has a proud tradition of collecting Hebraica and Judaica that goes back to its earliest days and continues into the present. It is our hope that this exhibit will present in miniature the depth and richness of Yale's vast Hebraica and Judaica holdings. This on-line version contains a complete listing of the contents of the exhibit but only a selection of the items actually on display at the Sterling Memorial Library appear in picture form.
