The anthology in Jewish literature by David Stern( file )
11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,049 libraries worldwide
From the Talmud to the latest collection of short stories, the anthology has been a ubiquitous presence in Jewish literature throughout its history, and has played a seminal role in the creation, transmission, and preservation of Jewish culture since ancient times.

The Washington Haggadah the life of a Jewish book by David Stern( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"This presentation features the Washington Haggadah, one of the most important illustrated Hebrew manuscripts preserved in an American public collection and an unprecedented loan from the Library of Congress. A Haggadah is the book used at the Passover seder, the ritual meal that commemorates the exodus of the ancient Israelites from Egypt. Although the essential components of the text were established in the second century, the Haggadah was first made into an independent, illustrated book in the Middle Ages. With captivating images in tempera and gold on parchment, the Washington Haggadah bears the date January 29, 1478, and the signature of the renowned scribe and illuminator Joel ben Simeon. Born in Cologne around 1420, Joel ben Simeon worked in both Germany and northern Italy. Ten Hebrew manuscripts bearing his signature survive, and haggadot were something of a specialty. Certain details of the text of the Washington Haggadah{u2014}including an early, specific reference to horseradish as the bitter herb to be used at the meal{u2014}distinguish this book as one created while Joel ben Simeon was working in Germany"--YouTub
