Conference Proceeding: From Mickey to Lowell: Creation of a Center for the Study and Preservation of Jewish Music

In 2014, Dr. Mark Kligman was hired as the first Mickey Katz Endowed Chair in Jewish Music at UCLA. This has attracted students to UCLA as a center for Jewish music scholarship. The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music received a gift to establish the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music in order to give attention to American Jewish music as an area of research and study. The UCLA Libraries are coordinating with the archive and across units to develop a shared collection development plan, programming and research.
