“Art, Archaeology, and Traces of the Past”
Join us for an evening with Barbara Boehm (the Met Cloisters), Debra Kaplan (Bar Ilan University), and Efraim Shocham-Steiner (Ben-Gurion University) exploring the recovery of a Jewish past in Christian cities in medieval Europe. This event is connected to the exhibit “The Colmar Treasure: A Medieval Jewish Legacy” (closing January 12, 2020) at the Met Cloisters, which features a cache of jeweled rings, brooches, and coins—the precious possessions of a Jewish family of medieval Alsace—hidden in the 14th century in the wall of a house in Colmar, France, and discovered in 1863.
All Fordham events in Jewish Studies are free.
This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
