    From the collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem
    by Daisy Raccah-Djivre, edited by Esther Juhasz, photography by Mauro Magliani, contributions by No'am Bar'am Ben-Yossef and Ester Muchawsky-Schnapper
    Drawing on the Israel Museum's rich collection of Jewish dress, the largest of its kind worldwide, this colorful volume explores aspects of Jewish identity: integration and segregation, in addition to tradition, transition and innovation. Written for a broad audience, the book addresses such general issues as the impact of widespread migration, as well as specific questions like the ritual requirements that determine special garments.
    This book presents in-depth research, which reveals the diversity of pre-modern Jewish attire, and documents the dress traditions of many communities. Lavish pictures of garments are juxtaposed with rare photographs from the museum's archive, attesting to individual and communal taste and offering a source of inspiration for fashion designers today. Joining images to detailed texts, The Jewish Wardrobe will serve as a lasting resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike.
