Jewish Teen Foundation Shares Buried Treasures

A Geniza is an area in a synagogue or cemetery for the temporary storage of worn-out Hebrew-language books and papers prior to proper burial.  OSU doctoral student Rachel Richman will discuss what 1000 year-old sacred trash from the Cairo Geniza teaches us about the Jews of Medieval Cairo.  This program is part of the Melton Center’s Senior Adult Jewish Learning Series.  It is sponsored by the Columbus Jewish Youth Foundation.  It will be held on February 24 at Creekside at the Village.
