JTSIn 2006, The Friedberg Genizah Project commissioned Ardon Bar-Hama to digitized JTS’s 45,000 Cairo Genizah fragments for archival and research purposes. With Ardon’s revolutionized methods and photographic techniques, the project was completed in only 3 months and laid the ground work for a world-wide effort to digitize all the Genizah fragments ever found. He also digitally photographed a selection of very important Hebrew illuminated manuscripts, including The Prato Hagaddah from Spain (circa 1300) , The Rothschild Mahzor from Italy, 1455 and a Prayer book from Germany, 1290. With their documents a website displaying their treasures was created as well as a website dedicated to the celebration of Passover which included manuscripts dating back to the Middle Ages.
