Major Renovations to Yale's Judaica Reading Room by DSA Published

Inside the Program in Judaic Studies - Spring 2011 newsletter, an article titled "Major Renovations to Library's Judaica Reading Room" features DSA's recently completed project in Yale University's Sterling Memorial Library. In this story, Nanette Stahl, Judaica Collection Curator states: "In his careful attention to detail, Mr. Sakamoto used the grates that cover the air-conditioning and heating units as a means of beautifying the room. The grates are designed to echo the seven species for within in rabbinic tradition the land of Israel is known." For more images of the project, check out our website!
