Guide Overview

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.

The United Jewish Appeal-Federation of New York collection at the American Jewish Historical Society consists of over 2100 boxes of material, spanning nearly 2400 linear feet. This Research Guide aims to provide an simplified overview of this collection to better focus your research as well as highlight related collections and library materials for further research at the Center. 

If you have any questions about any of the collections listed in this guide or how to request them for use in CJH's Lillian Goldman Reading Room, please contact our Reference staff at
