Description

Genizah finds from the synagogue of Dambach-la-Ville (Bas-Rhin), with additional objects from the synagogue genizot of Mackenheim, Bergheim and Horbourg. These items reveal the significance of the genizah as a resource for understanding the daily life of these rural Jewish communities, from the beginning of the modern era to the end of the 19th Century. Catalog essays discuss the Alsatian genizot and their methodology, their exceptional number of Torah binders (more than 400), and their contribution to the study of Alsatian Jewry. Additional texts on the research of German, Bohemian and Moravian genizot. Complete list of exhibits, each with extensive entry. 184 items.
