About this item

Scholars of history and Jewish culture explore Jews and Jewish communities of Sephardic origins, as well as those that fell into the orbit of Sephardic culture and influence. They cover the medieval Mediterranean, women of the Genizah, Italy and Western Europe, Jews under Islam, the modern experience, and documents: unknown voices. Among their topics are textiles travel: the role of Sephardim in the transmission of textile forms and designs, independent Jewish women in medieval Egypt: enterprise and ambiguity, the unique case of the Syrian-Jewish immigrants in Egypt, from childhood to old age in 25 years: the Ecole Maïmonide in Algiers 1940-64, and a 1789 report on the Moroccan court by Franz von Dombay that mentions Jewish courtiers.
