An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend.
On January 25, Curator Dot Porter and guest host Judaica Special Collections Cataloging Librarian Louis Meiselman brought out CAJS Rar Ms 659, the holographic manuscript of the hexadic work Shesh kenafayim. Written in the 19th century, the manuscript includes illustrations of the Cohanim's finger formations in a Cabalistic scheme. (CWAC recording)
