Rehousing of the Jewish Historical Society's Archival Collections and Historical Objects

The purchase of archival supplies and storage furniture to preserve two collections tracing the history of the Jewish community in the greater Washington, D.C. area from the mid-19th century through the present. The collections contain 470 linear feet of archival records, 1,500 photographs, and 300 ritual objects that document Jewish involvement with the civil rights movement, the development of communal organizations, and the expansion of congregations in the region during the mid-20th century.

Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington will purchase archival shelving and supplies to complete the rehousing of two major collections documenting local rabbis and synagogues in the Washington D.C. area in the mid-late 20th century. The Society will purchase an object storage cabinet to properly house the growing collection of Jewish ritual objects and historical objects documenting Jewish life in the greater Washington area. The Society will purchase a datalogger to provide accurate environmental information in the collections storage area.
