This compelling documentary tells the story of the Cairo Geniza, a vast treasure trove of manuscripts hidden for centuries in the geniza, or sacred storeroom, of an ancient synagogue in Cairo. After their scholarly discovery in the nineteenth century, these priceless documents, spanning nearly a thousand years of Jewish life, were dispersed to libraries around the world. Today, thanks to an unprecedented international effort, the Geniza archive has been digitally reunited in the “cloud,” freely accessible online to everyone, everywhere.

The front entrance of Rackham, located on East Washington, is accessible by stairs and ramp. There are elevators on both the east and wends ends of the lobby. The amphitheater is on the fourth floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact judaicstudies@umich.edu or 734-763-9047.
