I've added a cover image for the Artscroll Selichot, if you'd like to add it to your copy.
after each person's comment, on the left, there should be a link that says "post comment". You might have to join the group to be able to post; some groups restrict posting to members...
If you're interested, a number of us are discussing "Unlocking the Torah Text"; we'd love to have you join us!
hi cheryl,
you're welcome, thanks to you.
i think that for now, i have to give up my overall "seder" project - at least until a decent hebrew database is made available. many people on LT with hebrew books simply catalog the english translations of their books, and add the tag "hebrew" or "in hebrew". not to mention those people who catalog only their non-hebrew books... not everyone would go through the trouble of manually entering the correct transliteration!
hi cheryl,

that sounds great. it seems like a subject that's a lot less familiar than the jewish community in spain. what are some of the main sources of information for 14th century strasburg, and in particular, the jewish community there? was french in the 1300s as different from french today as chaucer's english is from ours? i imagine you must be a serious scholar of french just to understand the sources. do you need to know other languages too - latin, perhaps to read church records? does the poetry of the troubadours and trouveres provide helpful background?

hi c.v. ... we share an interesting subset of books. you're the only other library-thinger who's got the case of jews from arab countries, for example. where do you live? have you spent a lot of time in israel? -peter
You must be an expert of Jewish History, etc.
