The Center for Jewish History provides a collaborative home for five partner organizations and their collections, whereby each partner preserves a different facet of world Jewry. The collections and library materials found in our stack spaces can be accessed by requesting materials via our online catalog and visiting the Lillian Goldman Reading Room to conduct research.

In addition to providing access to archival and rare library materials in our Reading Room, the Center also houses the Ackman & Ziff Genealogical Institute, where you can use databases and consult with genealogy librarians to uncover more about your family's history.

The Center’s expert librarians, archivists, conservators, and information specialists are leaders in preserving and highlighting archival material for a wide audience through the latest practices in digitization, library science, and public education. Besides being one of the world’s foremost research institutions, the Center also offers a wide array of symposia, conferences, lectures, and museum exhibitions directly related to the collections available for public research.
