An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators.
On June 8, Curator Dot Porter was originally scheduled to present LJS 41, the Book of Esther in Hebrew written on 3 gatherings removed from a miscellany, but instead she brought out Ms. Rolls 2010, 2011, and 2013 – Scrolls of Esther. Three scrolls of the Book of Esther, to be read during Purim. North Africa, 17th or 18th c. (Rolls are not yet digitized. CWAC Recording)
The presentation of LJS 41 was rescheduled for September 14, 2023.
