May Update of Digital Collections

last modified May 29, 2014 09:19 AM

Five hundred new fragments have been added to our online Genizah collection. Among them are copies of the only known Medieval Hebrew poem by a woman (Mosseri VIII.202.2 and T-S NS 143.46), a 10th century letter which is believed to be documentary proof of the existence of Khazar Jews in Kiev (T-S 12.122) and a court record dealing with a famous case of murder (T-S 8.111).


Research and teaching in the field of Jewish Studies take place in a variety of faculties and departments across the University of Cambridge. The Cambridge Forum for Jewish Studies is an initiative whose objective is to join up this activity and communicate the range of expertise and wealth of research in the field that currently exists in the university. The Forum meets once a term to exchange information and ideas. It is hoped that it will encourage wider participation and a variety of perspectives.
