Cairo Geniza

I just finished reading Sacred Trash, a wonderful book that tells the story of the Geniza’s “rediscovery” as a treasure trove of the  Mediterranean world in the middle Ages. I had read many of the (standard) works mentioned in the book as a graduate student, and it was tremendous fun to get to know the authors! And then, after a discussion with a friend about the use of recent technology, I came across this article in the NYT, on Piecing Together a Jigsaw of Jewish Lore.
