My name is Esther Ben Ami and I am a student at the University of Rochester. I decided to pursue this project because I wanted to highlight the Jewish literary contributions to the Medieval era. This project is sponsored by the Rossell Hope Robbins Library, the non-circulating medieval studies library at the University of Rochester. The Robbins Library hosts a number of online literary collections and publications from the Middle Ages, including The Camelot Project and the TEAMS Middle English Text Series. I’m proud to include the Medieval Jewish Poetry Project as part of the Library’s digital series!
