A Decade of Distinction- A Special Advertorial Section
Upon the 10th anniversary of its founding, the Center for Jewish History is proud to celebrate its success in joining together the collections of 5 distinguished Jewish cultural and archival organizations. Since opening to the public in October 2000, the Center has achieved recognition as a venue of unrivaled historical documentation and scholarship, imaginative exhibition of Judaic art and artifacts, and vital public dialogue. The collections of its partners total more than 500,000 volumes and 100 million archival documents, and include thousands of pieces of artwork, textiles, and ritual objects, as well as music, photographs and films. Taken together, they comprise the largest repository of the modern Jewish experience outside of Israel.
