HEARING NEW VOICES IN THE SYNAGOGUE: INSIGHTS FROM THE CAIRO GENIZA A GALLERY TALK WITH ARNOLD FRANKLIN

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 | 6:00 pm

The contents of the Cairo Geniza have enriched, deepened – and complicated – our understanding of medieval Jewish life. From materials on the Karaite community and evidence of early Palestinian traditions to documents relating to ordinary citizens, the Geniza informs our understanding of these and other aspects of medieval Jewish life that were previously lost or blurred to us. Join historian Arnold Franklin (Queens College), in the company of original Geniza documents and beautiful medieval art and artifacts in the exhibition Threshold to the Sacred: The Ark Door of Cairo’s Ben Ezra Synagogue, as he discusses and allows you to hear these “new” voices.

Tickets: $8, general; $6 YUM members, students and seniors. Limited capacity. For tickets, go to: www.smarttix.com; or call (212) 868‐4444

MO’ MONEY - MO’ PROBLEMS 
Need to borrow money from someone? Or have you come to collect?
This piece of Mishneh Torah written by Moses Maimonides comes from the Sefer Mishpatim, book of civil law, and discusses the rights and obligations of creditors, the laws of borrowing money and the resolutions mandated by the court.
The Mishneh Torah, written between 1170 and 1180 is a Guide to the system of Jewish law put together by Moses Maimonides to attempt to simplify the study of Jewish law and to make law accessible to all Jews especially those that did not have the skill or even the resources to understand the Jewish text. 
So if your friend comes banging on your door to collect make sure you read this text so youre prepared with a proper Jewish argument!
You can learn more about this piece of Mishneh Torah and the Ben Ezra synagogue , in YUM’s new exhibition, Threshold to the Sacred: The Ark Door of Cairo’s Ben Ezra Synagogue, on view through February 2014.

HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR ABC’S?
Heres a little piece to help refresh your alphabet skills.
This colorful children’s alphabet primer was used as an exciting way to help children learn the Hebrew alphabet. What better way to grab a child’s attention than with vibrant colors and animated letters, like the ones we see in this alphabet primer. Even back then educators were thinking of creative ways, like using color and pictures, to grapple with the wondering attention of children.
Dont we wish we had something like this when we were learning? we might have paid a little more attention..
