Everyday Jewish Life in Imperial Russia

Preparation of a documentary history of everyday Jewish life in imperial Russia, incorporating translations of documents from Russian, Hebrew, and Yiddish. (24 months)

This collaborative project seeks to prepare a documentary history of everyday Jewish life (Alltagsgeschichte) in Imperial Russia. The principal goal is to provide scholars of Russian and European history with significant texts on the quotidian of Jewish life in the tsarist empire and complement popularizations with a scholarly perspective. It will draw upon archival documents accessible only since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, rabbinic literature, and other untranslated texts in Hebrew, Yiddish, and Russian. It will include analytical introductions and substantive annotations to make sense of the documents.
