The Center for Jewish History is pleased to be the recipient of a 2013 digitization grant from the Metropolitan New York Library Council.

The Center’s project, “American Soviet Jewry Movement in New York: Posters and Photographs,” will involve the digitization of dozens of political posters and rare photographs from the archives of American Jewish Historical Society, one of its partner organizations. The materials to be digitized document numerous protests, rallies, boycotts, and other acts of civil disobedience that united activists to create awareness of the plight of Soviet Jews. When digitized, these materials will be accessible online at no cost via the Center’s Digital Collections.
