Collection Encounter Event at the John Rylands Library

Thursday, 27 June 2019 | 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Branch: Manchester

The John Rylands Library, Deansgate, has a wide variety of Judaica and Hebrew printed books. A curator from the museum, Jane Gallagher, will share highlights of the collection which includes rare and early Hebrew printing, Judeo-Spanish literature and even Robert Wakefield’s 1524 Oratio de laudibus et utilitate trium linguarum Arabicae, Chaldaicae et Hebraicae (‘On the Three Languages’), which was the first Hebrew and Arabic in a book printed in England.

In all there will be at least 12 rare books to see which will all be contextualised and there will be time for a discussion and Q&A. So please join us as we see the Jewish heritage which lies in the John Rylands Library.

Entry is free but space limits us to 30 people so please email jhsmanchester@gmail.com to reserve a place.
