The Kaplan Blog: a Brilliant Legacy of Research

To supplement the existing information about prized items in the Kaplan Collection, Mr. Kaplan has begun blogging about the importance of individual pieces that have hidden meanings and special significance.

For decades, Arnold Kaplan made careful notes about the significance of items he acquired and these notes uniquely explain his reasons for acquiring a particular item.  So, for example, an object with no obvious Judaica connection, like an early handwritten letter from Pittsburgh, is often only understood as a work of early American Judaica in light of Mr. Kaplan’s original observations, research and insights. 

The blog contains a link to the digital images in Colenda (NOTE: Colenda does not contain a link back to the blog).
