Last Call: Bodleian Manuscripts at the Jewish Museum closing February 3; NYAE Tours begin Tuesday

Crossing Borders: Manuscripts from the Bodleiain Libraries at the Jewish Museum
through February 3rd.

The exceptional exhibition of manuscripts from the Bodleian Libraries (Oxford, England) at the Jewish Museum is about to end on Sunday, February 3rd. Even in these multiculti times, this occasion to study Hebrew, Latin and Arabic manuscripts side by side in a museum is quite rare. Here, we learn through looking at the mutual influences among Christian, Muslim and Jewish artists during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.  The installation is beautifully arranged and suitable for lingering - provided there isn't a holiday mob.  

Please join us on Tuesday, January 29th for a conversational tour of this extraordinary exhibition and the Sharon Lockhart/Noa Eshkol installation on dance.
