The American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) shared Center for Jewish History's post.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Blavatnik Family Foundation, The American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) and the Center for Jewish History recently collaborated to preserve and make accessible online several hundred hours of historic audio recordings from 1960s-1980s, as part of the archive of the American Soviet Jewry Movement. The recordings, originally formatted on magnetic tape, open-reels, and cassettes, feature phone calls to Jews in the USSR, interviews with “Refuseniks” and Prisoners of Conscience, US politicians, foreign policy experts, civil rights and cultural leaders. To read more about this monumental undertaking and several unique recordings that feature Bayard Rustin, civil rights leader and pioneer of the movement for the rights of Soviet Jews, please visit our blog: http://bit.ly/2qRUfYd.

A special thank you to a donor who found this beautiful World War I era charm bracelet at a flea market. While we do not actively collect museum objects, we decided to acquire this piece as it contains a specific name that can be traced back to the records of the National Jewish Welfare Board, in particular, The American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) collection I-180 National Jewish Welfare Board, Army-Navy Division records. Rose Minzesheimer was a 38-year-old originally from Chicago. According to documentation, she worked at the Jewish Welfare Board as a Civilian Aid. It is not clear from records when she first arrived in France, but she left France, sailing from Brest to Hoboken on August 1, 1919 on the S.S. Great Northern. This charm bracelet contains nine charms, including an elephant, a shoe, and a mezuzah. One small charm is dedicated to Joan of Arc, one is from Verdun 1916, and two are specifically engraved with Rose's name. This piece is part of the AJHS Museum Collection, which is closed to the public, but pieces can be loaned for exhibits. http://museums.cjh.org/web/pages/cjh/Display.php?irn=23436 #charmbracelet #wwi #worldwari #verdun #jwb #AEF #jewishwelfareboard #joanofarc

Amazing day with Regina Spektor at the Center for Jewish History filming for our TV episode on "The New Colossus." The The American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) shared poet Emma Lazarus's original manuscript with us, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research pulled papers from the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in 1889- exactly one hundred years before they went on to help Regina's family come to the United States in 1989. Stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes sneak peeks into the series, airing nationally on public television stations in April 2018!

The American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) shared Poetry in America's post.
The American Jewish Historical Society and YIVO had a special treat on Tuesday 5/18/17 as the PBS show Poetry in America filmed singer/songwriter Regina Spektor in dialogue with Harvard professor Elissa New regarding Emma Lazarus' poem, "The New Colossus." Ms. Spektor's recitation of the poem will bring tears to your eyes. In addition, viewing Lazarus's handwritten poem as compared to other printed versions surprised Professor New. You'll hear Spektor's recitation and Prof. New's surprise in April 2018 when the series premieres on PBS. #poetryinamerica #emmalazarus #newcolossus #reginaspektor #poetry #publicbroadcasting #pbs
