New York City's Center for Jewish History expands.
The three-year-old Center for Jewish History (CJH) <> 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 <>, American Sephardi Federation <>, Leo Baeck Institute <>, Yeshiva University Museum <> and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research <> — deposit their records at CJH. The $4 million expansion is scheduled for completion in April.
