Event description

The most extraordinary saga of Jewish discovery you may never have heard of, this compelling documentary tells the story of the Cairo Geniza, a vast treasure trove of manuscripts hidden for centuries in the sacred storeroom, or geniza, of a Cairo synagogue. Revolutionising our understanding of Jewish history, the Cairo Geniza illuminated a thousand years of vibrant Jewish life in the heart of the Islamic world, revealing the richness of Judeo-Arabic culture and periods of relative religious co-existence nearly unimaginable today. Among the most breathtaking of the Geniza’s many discoveries are hand-written drafts penned by Moses Maimonides, the legendary 12th century rabbi, scholar, and physician.
