Digital Minhag Archive

Nathaniel Deutsch is currently developing the Digital Minhag Archive. Working with a graduate student in Computer Science, Deutsch is translating his work with the Ansky questionnaire into a dynamic, online survey that asks users to consider their own religious practices alongside the history of Jewish life in the Pale of Settlement.


Venetian Jewish Anthology

The Venetian Jewish Anthology is a scholarly resource for teaching and research that explores the cultural, intellectual, and historic experience of Venetian Jewry. The Anthology carries forward the work of an institute on “Venice, the Jews, and Italian Culture: Historical Eras and Cultural Representations” that took place during the summers of 2006 and 2008. This five-week interdisciplinary institute was funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and culminated in a three-day conference on “Venice, the Jews, and Italian Culture,” sponsored by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and attended by twenty-eight scholars representing universities in the United States, Canada, and Italy.
