Yes, But Did They Wear Borsolinos?

Professor Daniel Sperber of Bar Illan University has a new book out (in Hebrew) on the everyday objects, from beds to clothes, used by Jews in Israel at the time of the Mishna and Talmud. Some of his work has been translated into English, including a book on the sources of minhagim (Jewish customs):



“Why Jews Do What They Do: The History of Jewish Customs Throughout the Cycle of the Jewish Year” (Daniel Sperber)
