Highlighting the historical roles that women played in carrying on Jewish cultural traditions and in the advancement of technology, arts, science, and philanthropy thanks them for their intelligence and ingenuity and inspires a new generation of confident women.
The five partner organizations here at the Center for Jewish History hold dozens of collections and hundreds of books highlighting women who traveled across continents, survived all odds, and contributed so much to their communities and society at large. We hope by browsing this libguide you learn more about their achievements, our collections, and how to experience these materials for yourself, first-hand.
This research guide was created to highlight various archival collections and books from each of the Center's five partner institutions that celebrate the lives and successes of Notable Jewish Women around the world. If you are interested in a collection or library item you do not see highlighted in this guide, please visit search.cjh.org, where you can search by keyword, name, title, subject or call number.
Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions about the thousands of books, archival collections, and multimedia available to use for research at the Center.
