The Journey of an Ancient Hebrew Manuscript to the Library of Congress
Hosted by Rutgers University Alumni Association
Join Rutgers alumni and friends for an exploration of medieval Hebrew manuscripts. Gary A. Rendsburg, Blanche and Irving Laurie Chair of Jewish History, Rutgers University, will discuss his research on Hebrew manuscripts at the major libraries of the world: Oxford, Cambridge, the Vatican, and more, including our very own Alexander Library. The pièce-de-résistance will be the 1,000-year-old Torah scroll sheet obtained by the Library of Congress in 2017, purchased after consultation with Prof. Rendsburg.
