Opening Hours On the donors

The collection was initiated thanks to the generous donation by Mr. William Margulies and Prof. Alice Shalvi, commemorating their parents, Benzion and Pearl Margulies. Benzion Margulies was a publisher who published books in Hebrew, Yiddish, and German in the "Ararat" Publishing Society. He also published the Hebrew periodical "Metsudah". Mr. and Mrs. Margulies cherished the Yiddish language, were active members in Jewish organizations, and worked to advance Jewish community and culture in England.
