This lecture will present highlights of rare and important Judaica from the legendary Sassoon family collection. Assembled over the course of more than a century by the fabled “Rothschilds of the East,” the Sassoon collection features a treasure trove of gilded silver objects, rare Hebrew manuscripts, textiles and family artifacts that have descended in the family since its earliest days, with items drawn from their residencies in Baghdad, Bombay, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom.
