EDJC 2023 > The book heritage of the pre-war Prekmurje Neological Jewish community: prayer books and ritual books and their owners
In 2021, the Murska Sobota Provincial and Study Library implemented a cataloging project of 99 units of Jewish prayer books and ritual books that were owned by Jewish families living in the Prekmurje area until the beginning of the Second World War or until their deportation to concentration camps. The final result of the cataloging was the establishment of the Jewish Collection. The exhibition presents a selection of prayer books and ritual books according to different content sections. Through the books, which are silent witnesses of the heritage of Jewish life in the Pomur region, the activities and fate of their owners and the local Jewish community are also presented. The authors of the traveling exhibition are Maja Kutin, a project collaborator, an expert on Hebrew and Judaism, and Boris Hajdinjak, director of Center of Jewish Cultural Heritage Synagogue Maribor.
