American Judaica, 1841-1876
Within the American Antiquarian Society’s collections are a continually expanding range of Jewish voices and stories from the mid-nineteenth century; what is presented here is just a small sample, intended to inspire further research and acquisitions. Featured Items are grouped by subject to provide historical context. A Geography of Religious Life was grafted using descriptions of AAS’s holdings for many Jewish institutions across the United States. Building the Collections reveals the many ways AAS collections continue to thrive and grow by featuring some of the Society’s recent acquisitions in 2016.
