The Center for Jewish History Digital Collections

The Center for Jewish History in New York is the home of five independent Jewish historical and research institutes: the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Sephardi Federation, the Leo Baeck Institute, the Yeshiva University Museum, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Combined, these institutes have digitized an enormous amount of documents, images, and sound recordings which you can search in a combined catalog known as the Center for Jewish History Digital Collections or browse by institution or resource type.

I will feature in future more detailed posts on the digital collections of each institute.
