A Journey Through Jewish Worlds: Highlights from the Braginsky Collection of Hebrew Manuscripts and Printed Books
Rosenberg & Winnick Galleries
A Journey Through Jewish Worlds offers museum visitors a first-time glimpse at the rare treasures inside a world-class private collection. This exceptional collection of manuscripts and printed books provides an overview of seven centuries of Jewish creativity and artistry, and features beautifully ornamented legal and liturgical manuscripts, decorated marriage contracts and illustrated scrolls of the Book of Esther, many with richly crafted cases made from precious metals or carved wood. Exhibition highlights include a manuscript written in Germany in 1288, an illustrated Italian marriage contract on parchment with unique cuttings from 1741, and Esther scrolls from Holland, Italy, Greece and India.
