New York City's Center for Jewish History expands.
The three-year-old Center for Jewish History (CJH) <www.cjh.org> in New York City broke ground last fall on a six-floor upward expansion of its archives building. CJH officials (and genealogists researching their Jewish ancestry) hope the center will become the "Library of Congress of the Jewish People" as a result of the 12,000 square feet of new space.
 
The new floors will accommodate CJH's rapidly growing archives, which include 100 million archival documents, manuscripts and photographs; 500,000 library volumes; and tens of thousands of artifacts and works of art. Five organizations — the American Jewish Historical Society <www.ajhs.org>, American Sephardi Federation <www.asfonline.org>, Leo Baeck Institute <www.lbi.org>, Yeshiva University Museum <www.yu.edu/museum> and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research <www.yivoinstitute.org> — deposit their records at CJH. The $4 million expansion is scheduled for completion in April.
