Welcome to our Newsletter!
We’ve been busy these past few months, processing collections (including the Records of Elm Farm Supermarkets and Records of The New England Jewish Music Forum, uploading collections into our digital archives, helping researchers with various academic projects and institutional anniversaries, and attending conferences, including LimmudBoston and the Association for Jewish Studies Conference.
LimmudBoston 2013 was held on Sunday, December 8, at Mishkan Tefila in Newton, Massachusetts. Staff manned an informational table at the day-long event.
LimmudBoston is an innovative, volunteer-driven celebration of Jewish lifelong learning for the entire community. The event showcases Jewish scholarship, art, music and community organizations.
The 2013 Association for Jewish Studies conference took place December 15 through 17 at the Sheraton in Boston. During the event AJHS-NEA staff provided informational materials and showcased our digital archives.
The Annual Conference of the Association for Jewish Studies is an international gathering of Jewish studies scholars and takes place in different cities each year. With close to 1000 attendees, the AJS annual conference provides a unique opportunity to share ideas and explore the world of Jewish scholarship.
Both conferences gave AJHS-NEA staff an opportunity to promote our organization to the local, national and international Jewish communities.
