Jewish Heritage Collection

Description

The University Library and the Frankel Center for Judaic Studies were the joint beneficiaries of a generous gift from Constance and (the late) Theodore Harris of Beverly Hills, California, who in 2003-04 gave an extraordinary collection of some 2,000 items to the University of Michigan. The Jewish Heritage Collection was formed to reflect Jewish life, and it does so in an unusual assemblage of artwork, books, printed ephemera such as pamphlets and postcards, and objects of everyday and religious significance.
