"The Center for Jewish History is the home of five preeminent Jewish institutions dedicated to history, culture, and art. It unites under one roof collections that bring together centuries of Jewish life: The American Jewish Historical Society, The American Sephardi Federation, The Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum , The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research." - "The Center for Jewish History in New York launched CJH Digital Collections, an online multimedia catalog of materials documenting Jewish culture and history from across the globe. The catalog, available on the Web at, currently contains more than 13,000 unique images, 200 archival finding aids and 40 audio files, most of which are available to the general web public, and is continuing to grow rapidly as the Center and its five Partners continue to take advantage of the benefits that digitization can offer. - Contained within the initial catalog are diverse and eclectic digital materials that represent the unique strengths of each of the Center's five Partners. Examples range from the American Sephardi Federation's collection of French engravings, to the American Jewish Historical Society's Lower East Side Photograph Collection, to the Leo Baeck Institute's Collection of German Decrees from the 16th and 17th Century, to the YIVO Institute's rare Hebrew and Yiddish books and children's books, to the Yeshiva University Museum's Abe Grubère collection of fashion designs from the 1940's and 1950's."
