From Slavery to Redemption: Crafting Jewish Identity in the Middle Ages

Presented in conjunction with The Rylands Haggadah: Medieval Jewish Art in Context (on view March 27–September 30, 2012), this lecture by Abby Kornfeld, a doctoral candidate at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, explores the beauty, poignancy, and wit of illuminated Hebrew manuscripts, and examines how art shaped the experience of Jewish ritual in the Middle Ages.

The installation is made possible by The David Berg Foundation.
