Discovery of the Cairo Geniza at the Ben Ezra synagogue provided a unique window into the past, starting in the twelfth century, when Maimonides was the personal physician to the Sultan. We will learn about the intrigues of the discovery. Abraham Leibson will lead the session. We will view two YouTube videos, one by the book authors and the other from Cambridge University, which organized the find that was brought to them by Rabbi Solomon Schechter in 1896. Register at
