Just in time for the High Holidays, the National Library of Israel, in collaboration with the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies, has launched the first three installments of a new series entitled "A Look at the Jewish Year," providing insights into the Jewish calendar and holidays through the lens of the national library's world-leading collection of Jewish manuscripts, books, printed materials and more. The first film focusses on the Jewish calendar including its development from ancient times until the present; the second film focuses on Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur; and the third installment discusses the festive holidays of Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Each of the approximately 15-minute clips features a conversation between Dr. Yoel Finkelman, curator of the Haim and Hanna Salomon Judaica Collection of the National Library of Israel, and Rabbanit Nechama Barash of the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies. KAN reporter Naomi Segal heard more about the series from Dr. Finkelman.
