Download PDF for this date

The American Jewish Historical Society and the Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University will publish a multi-volume series of histories in Hebrew describing the Jewish community in the United States. The project will involve newly written and edited works in English prepared by distinguished scholars and translated into Hebrew and published by the Magnes Press of the Hebrew University. The first three volumes are expected to be published in 1969-70, with the initial works concentrating on the history of Jewish life in the U.S. from the earliest settlement to the current day.
