United Kingdom, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project

No systematic search for the fragments in British collections has been undertaken in the past. Recently, the search for the fragments is carried on by Judith Olszowy-Schlanger and the French team in collaboration with the British Library and the Cairo Genizah Research Unit, Cambridge. An important part of the British project is the connection between the Cairo Genizah Collections and the fragments found in the bindings: a recent survey carried in the Cambridge University Library revealed that several dozens of fragments which were thought to emanate from the Cairo Genizah actually come from bindings of Spanish manuscripts. The development of the British part of the project is one of our priorities, given the numbers of Latin and other manuscripts in British collections and the undeniable interest and diversity of the fragments found and published so far.
