Ashkenaz: The German Jewish Heritage
The early history of Ashkenazic Jewry demonstrates the remarkable persistence of tradition-a persistence that helped German Jews retain their identity through repeated crusades, the Black Death, libels and accusations, burnings, and dispersion through Europe. Much of the material in the show had never before been seen by the public. Such as: The Lehmann Family papers (1720-1880) of Yeshiva University, The Bernstein Collection; a large collection of European memory books, rabbinical records, seals, and civil papers; and the Ettlinger Collection; the personal papers, books, and belongings of Rabbi Jacob Ettlinger, who was rabbi of Altona for 25 years.
