Israel, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project

The National Library of Israel holds a collection of many hundreds of fragments of Hebrew manuscripts, used as a secondary use in bindings. While most of the collection is made of Oriental or Yemenite fragments, it contains more than 100 European bindings from the 12th Century and on, which are part of the BwB project. No systematic search has been conducted in the NLI's rich collection of incunabula and early books. However, the Library holds important bindings collections, such as those of Nechemiah Allony and Ezra Gorodetzky.
