This exhibition, which includes a Mishneh Torah personally signed by Maimonides, features rare pieces on loan from the Bodleian Library in Oxford, the British Library, the Royal Danish Library, the Mantua State Archive of the Italian Ministry of Culture and the National Library of Israel. Also featured are selections from one of the world’s premier private collections, the Hartman Family Collection of Manuscripts and Rare Books. These objects will bring into sharp focus the legacy and profound influence of Maimonides’s writings and thought.
