Conference Proceeding: Place of Gathering: Synagogue Archives at Yeshiva University

This session provides a description and overview of collections of synagogue archives at Yeshiva University, with an emphasis on describing and providing examples of different types of records which typically comprise synagogue archives. There will be discussion of the history of synagogues, chiefly in New York City (plus a small taste of the large state of Texas), why it is important to collect synagogue records, and different aspects of acquiring synagogue records.

Presented by Shulamith Berger at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
