Archivists at Cincinnati’s Hebrew Union College have found old minutes from Reform movement meetings in the 1870s. “This is the kind of find that is rare and thoroughly exhilarating,” said Gary Zola, executive director of the Marcus Center, part of the American Jewish Archives. The archives, which document the early years of the Reform institution, were found earlier this month amid old files in the basement of HUC’s administrative building. The first entry in the 500-page volume is dated July 16, 1874.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
