Filled with more than a million documents and hundreds of movies and radio shows, the New York-based American Jewish Committee Archives house an extraordinary range of resources on the past century of American Jewish history.
The Center for Jewish History unites under one roof collections that represent centuries of Jewish life--defining one people and many cultures. We are home to five preeminent Jewish institutions dedicated to history, culture and art: American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research.
JWA.org offers an online Encyclopedia of Jewish women, lesson plans and other educational materials that can be downloaded for free, online exhibits on topics as diverse as "Jewish Women and the Feminist Revolution" and "Katrina's Jewish Voices," several book and film guides, a growing collection of reminiscences of recently deceased Jewish women, a lively blog, and numerous other resources for anyone interested in the experiences of American Jewish women, both celebrated and unheralded.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was established by an act of Congress that mandated the creation of a "permanent living memorial to the victims of the Holocaust." It is the material that belonged to those victims and survivors and other materials that relate their stories, experiences, and histories that form the basis of the collection of the Museum. Many objects in the Museum's collection have been donated by individuals who directly experienced the Holocaust or by their families.
