The Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit
The 140,000 fragments of Hebrew and Jewish literature and documents rescued from the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo cover every aspect of life in the Mediterranean area a thousand years ago. The active programme of conservation and research being conducted at Cambridge University Library, where they are housed, is leading to all manner of exciting discoveries about Jewish religious, communal and personal life, Hebrew culture, settlement in the land of Israel and relations with Muslims and Christians from as early as the ninth and tenth centuries. Only by the attraction of additional external support can the completion of the current projects be assured.

STaM On Line
STaM is an acronym for three of the sacred Jewish scribal items--Sifrei Torah (scrolls containing the first five books of the Bible), Tefillin (phylactaries) and mezuzot--a parchment on which portions of the Shema Yisrael prayer are written, and which Jews are commanded to place on their doorposts. STaM must be written on parchment in black ink by a Torah-observant man. The writing must be legible to a child just learning to read Hebrew and must conform to standards described in the Tor, a book of Jewish law. Within those criteria, there is room for variation in style and artistic impact.
