Genizat Germania

A conference held in Germany in June. Four photos of fragments here.

To remind you (since I'm sure you remember) - the fragments of Sefer Yerushalmi were found in a couple of places in Germany. The "new and improved" Talmud Yerushalmi refered to by the Rokeah and the Ra'avyah, with additions made at some point during the Middle Ages. First noted by Victor Aptowitzer and expanded upon by Yaakov Zussman, who identified the fragments and published them in Kovetz al Yad.

A volume of the conference proceedings will be published next year, most probably partly in German, partly in English. After Genizat Italia (Mauro Perani) has taught us much about the Italian Jewish bookshelf, Genizat Germania will most probably do the same for Ashkenaz.
