United Jewish Appeal-Federation of New York Collection I-433
Over the course of a four-year project, the American Jewish Historical Society will organize, describe, and make available thousands of boxes of archival material connected with the projects and philanthropic mission of UJA-Federation of New York.
This project has been generously funded by United Jewish Appeal-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York in partnership with the American Jewish Historical Society.
United Jewish Appeal-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York (UJA-Fed of NY) has been a central force for communal planning and philanthropy in the New York Jewish community since 1917. More than 60,000 donors pool their resources to help people in need, inspire a passion for Jewish life and learning, and strengthen Jewish communities around the world. Projects relate to health and human services, aging and vulnerable populations, Jewish education, and disaster relief.
This collection will be generally unavailable for public use until the second half of 2015. However, partial finding aids for complete parts of the collection are available online. These parts of the collection are available for research at the Center for Jewish History. More groups of records will become available online as processing is completed. By the second half of 2015 the collection will be completely processed and open to researchers, with one complete finding aid.
