THE DAWN OF JEWISH PRINTING : Rare incunabula printings demonstrate how the printing press helped shape Jewish destiny as “People of the Book”.

JEWISH LIFE THROUGH THE AGES: Artifacts including antique tefillin and tzitzit, illustrated Haggadahs, and the influential Book of Customs from 18th Century Amsterdam.

THE TALMUD TAKES SHAPE : The 500-year-old evolution of the printing of the Talmud—from Bomberg and Soncino to the modern ‘Vilna Shas’—tells a dramatic story of intrigue and perseverance.

THE TRIUMPH OF SURVIVAL : Relics bearing witness to early Jewish persecution and oppression; censored books and ghetto documents from the Middle Ages and surviving remnants of the Holocaust.

CHARTING THE HOLYLAND : Famed cartographers from The Renaissance Era map the Holy Land in striking detail using wood cut illustrations.

RABBI REUVEN GOLDSTEIN is the Rabbi of Congregation Am Echad in San Jose, CA and curator of the nationally acclaimed Witness to History Exhibition, which presents the unique and ongoing story of the Jewish People through a collection of ancient artifacts. 

WITNESS TO HISTORY is a one-of-a-kind traveling museum of ancient books, maps, coins and manuscripts with historic Jewish significance. On display will be a prized selection of treasured relics of Judaica dating back to the thirteenth century.
