This Jewish American Heritage Month, The New York Public Library celebrates the lasting contributions Jewish Americans have made to our nation and our city through the arts, government, education, business, science, and more. NYPL is home to the Dorot Jewish Division (which celebrated its 125th-anniversary last year)— the oldest public collection of Jewish research materials in America dating back to the 13th century and including over 250,000 titles of books and periodicals, incunabula, unique archival materials, and gorgeous medieval manuscripts. Below are some ways to begin exploring materials at NYPL—blog posts, videos, reading lists—related to Jewish Americans created by our staff.
