Solomon Schechter studies the contents of the Geniza.(Nextbook Press)

Nextbook Press’s Sacred Trash, by Adina Hoffman and Peter Cole, manages both to explore the contents the Cairo Geniza and to tell the gripping tale of the discovery of that long-lost trove of invaluable documents of Middle Ages Mediterranean Jewry—cleverly (and aptly) dubbed “The Living Sea Scrolls.” So it is kind of like Indiana Jones, only you get to learn more about what he’s found. And he’s Jewish. Indy is Jewish.
