Princeton University Geniza Newsletter

The Geniza Lab at Princeton University has catalogued and identified  a significant portion of the massive trove of manuscripts found in the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo. Today, we are rapidly expanding our purview to include a collaborative online presence. There are nearly 30,000 documents in various stages of transcription, translation, and digitization all thanks to a collaborative team of scholars and data professionals. This project aims to illuminate the history of Jewish life in medieval Cairo by making this treasure trove amenable to modern research methods. Please read our newsletter to learn more about our innovative contributions to medieval history.
