Michael Kent, Curator, Jacob M. Lowy Collection, Library & Archives Canada
Michael Kent, curator of the Jacob M. Lowy Collection, will speak about the hidden treasures of The Geniza, Jewish Sacred Trash, an exploration from Ottawa and around the world. The "geniza" is the sacred storage area in a Jewish synagogue or cemetery used for the interim disposal of worn-out religious books and papers. Imagine the tales some of these discarded materials may tell! Michael Kent leads us on a journey to uncover the past.
