The Jewish Women's Archive: Portal to a Richer American Jewish Past

By Karla Goldman

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2004

For almost ten years the Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) has been working to enrich popular and scholarly understandings of the American Jewish past. The 350th anniversary of American Jewish communal life being marked in 2004 and 2005 frames this effort with particular urgency. As this commemoration challenges Americans to come to terms with the significance of Jewish historical experience in the United States, JWA seeks to provide educators with accessible resources that can engage their students in a meaningful encounter with this past.
