Scribal Arts Rare Books Presentation: A Hillel@Stanford Half-Century Event

Zachary Baker, the Reinhard Family Curator of Judaica and Hebraica Collections in the Stanford University Libraries, will present a selection of rare books and manuscripts in Special Collections. Scribal arts will be the focus – both direct and indirect – of this tour. Rare books and manuscripts from Taube/Baron Collection (once the personal library of the Jewish historian Salo Wittmayer Baron), the Samson-Copenhagen Judaica Collection, the Valmadonna Collection will be included in the display. In addition, recent artists’ books from the Gunst Collection and contemporary ketubot from the Bob & Bob collection will be shown. Since the mid-1980s, these and other library collections have been essential for sustaining Jewish Studies scholarship at Stanford.
This event is part of Hillel@Stanford’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. All events are free and open to the public. All Hillel@Stanford Half-Century anniversary events are generously underwritten in part by grants from the Taube and Koret Foundations. This project is supported by a Stanford Arts grant.
