In Palestine pt.1

June 23, 2013

Molly and I (Josh) are in Palestine for two weeks as part of a librarians and archivists solidarity trip. Today was our first day, and we visited a half dozen libraries desperately trying to preserve irreplaceable manuscripts like the one to the right. This is hand-scripted, illuminated, Ottoman Empire-era Koran held and maintained in the Khalidi Library in the Old City, Jerusalem. You can follow what we’re doing on our trip HERE.
