Centuries-old documents and volumes from pre-Emancipation Europe reveal the continuity of Jewish life and the shaping of a strong Jewish identity. They come in part from commitment to and respect for the study and practice of Jewish law and religion. Learn how Jewish life was intensified as a result of the strict legal framework that limited the rights of Jews in Christian countries, and discover how Jews created communities rich in tradition, scholarship and culture.
