Bernard Shapero of Shapero Rare Books and Sandra Hindman of Les Enluminures are delighted to present 2000 Years of Jewish Culture: an exhibition of books, manuscripts, art, and jewellery.

About

A selling show, it is the first of its kind ever staged in the UK in a private space, and, accordingly, it will be marked by the publication of a fully illustrated catalogue. It encompasses every aspect of Jewish life, including philosophy, religion, literature, photography, fine art and jewellery.

Says curator Bela Goldenberg Taieb: ‘Each of the assembled artifacts – the oldest of which is a fragment of the Dead Sea Scrolls –  is representative of a particular field of endeavour, and as such they collectively offer a truly compelling picture of the Jewish contribution to world culture.'

The exhibition, which features over 100 objects, will be arranged over the basement, ground and first floor of Shapero’s Mayfair premises. It presents several important rare books, the subjects of which span the tenth to the twentieth centuries, including first editions of some important examples of Anglo-Judaica.
