The Fine Print
Remarkable Stories of the Jewish Printing Press
Includes a teacher’s manual and PPT.
This multimedia class features fifteen fascinating tales, each anchored in a priceless ancient book that will be shown and analyzed during this class.
We will witness how Jews rushed to adopt the printing press in its earliest iterations, and how they ingeniously overcame the bigots who tried to halt Jewish printing.
We will observe how Jews set up new printing houses soon after traumatic expulsions, and how the economics of the early Jewish book market influenced the gentile world of printing.
