AJL Regional Conference in Israel
Thanks to the hard work of Ya'Akov Aaronson, we will have a regional conference in Israel on November 5, 2010. We have 4 speakers, Shmuel Har Noy, Administrative Director of NLI
on the Challenges of the New National Library of Israel
, a professor from Bar Ilan
on The cultural significance of Jewish names
, Elhanan Adler on 10 years of digitization at NLI
and the last one on Discoveries of Hebrew materials in Christian locations
. This is about discovering Hebrew manuscripts in monasteries in Europe. The fellow, Moshe Rosenfeld, is authorized by the Catholic Church to search in monasteries for Hebrew materials. He has found some amazing things.
Sessions at the conference will be recorded to post as a podcast on the AJL website
At the conference, Ya'Akov will also look for people who would like to help organize an AJL group in Israel.
