Demythologizing the Cairo Geniza?

GENIZA FRAGMENTS BLOG: Q&A Wednesday: Deconstructing Genizah mythology, with Rebecca Jefferson (Melonie Schmierer-Lee and Rebecca Jefferson).

The discovery of the Cairo Geniza involve mored people than just Solomon Schechter. I learned a great deal from this blog post. I look forward to Rebecca Jefferson's book: The Cairo Genizah and the Age of Discovery in Egypt: the History and Provenance of a Jewish Archive (I. B. Tauris, 2022).

For PaleoJudaica posts on Solomon Schechter and his relationship with the Cairo Geniza, see here and links, plus here and here.
