Cambridge University Library

On Monday the boys experienced the sites of Cambridge. We visited the Cambridge University Library to meet the researchers of the Taylor-Schechter Genizah Collection. During this talk we heard about and viewed some of the artefacts and documents found in the genizah, bringing the Jewish medieval world of the Mediterranean area to life. We also had a wander around the quaint market place, which gave us a flavour of Cambridge, not just being a university town. The day would have not been complete without a lovely punting trip in the sun down the river Cam, where the students got to hear about and see the different colleges that make up Cambridge.
