In celebration of Archives Week 2016, Center and partner
staff collected and recorded stories about the collections and services at the
Center and its partners. If you have ever wondered why archives matter and how
archives can change lives, just have a listen.
In this recording, Yeshiva University Museum’s Collections
Curator Bonni-Dara Michaels describes the Museum and highlights one of the
Museum’s collections donated by the late fiber artist Ina Golub. Some of
Golub’s works are included in the exhibit “Uncommon Threads: Clothing &
Textiles from the YU Museum Collection” (September 28, 2016-April 29, 2017).
Yeshiva University Museum, which opened in 1973, has a collection of artifacts
dating from the Bronze Age (circa 3150 BCE) to the present. It is one of the
partners of the Center for Jewish History.
