The Center for Jewish History in New York is planning to expand upward. The museum, which sits in a tree-lined street in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, is launching a six-floor vertical addition on Sept. 29. “We are realizing the dream of creating the first ‘Library of Congress of the Jewish People,’ ” said the center’s chairman of the board, Bruce Slovin.
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.
