Eitan Lev Kensky

Reinhard Family Curator of Judaica and Hebraica Collections

As the Judaica and Hebraica curator, I select and collect material by or about Jews, in any format (from manuscript fragments to Israeli Yiddish theater posters and spiral-bound community cookbooks), in any language, produced anywhere. I also collect material written or performed in Jewish languages (Hebrew, Yiddish, Judeo-Arabic, Ladino, etc.) about any topic. I work with faculty and students to help them find the materials they need for their research and teaching.
