Submissions to the American Jewish Archives
Women of Reform Judaism, in cooperation with the American Jewish Archives, has launched a special project to kick-off its Centennial Celebration - a WRJ Centennial Archival Collection at the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, OH. As part of this effort, WRJ is asking sisterhoods across North America to submit artifacts showcasing their individual history that will become part of the collection and will help tell the story of the women of the Reform Movement during the past 100 years.
WRJ recently hosted a special Artifact Webinar presented by Rabbi Samuel K. Joseph, PhD, Professor of Jewish Education and Leadership Development at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. Watch a recording of the webinar or download the PowerPoint presentation. Show this to your board or at a larger membership meeting.
The Archive Project is looking for old pictures, records, reports, and minutes from years past. Look at the Submission guidelines for more information. December 15, 2012 was the deadline for the January 2013 display at the American Jewish Archives. Artifacts, in general, will be accepted anytime between now and the end 2013. You can either mail, email, or fax your artifact. We hope you will get your sisterhood involved in showcasing your own sisterhood's history to your congregation. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we know you will be with us for this outstanding year.
