The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research will use funds to support the arrangement, description, and digitization of four archival collections that are part of the larger Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Online Collections project (EBYVOC), an international preservation and access project. These theater and music collections are important, yet little known, resources for the study and exploration of not only modern Jewish culture and American Jewish immigrant culture, but also of American theater and popular culture. The collections include 1) the Esther Rachel Kaminska Yiddish Theater Museum Collection 2) the Music Collection, 3) the Abraham Moshe Bernstein Papers, & 4) Jewish Music Societies Collection. The project will be matched with 122,983.00 in non-federal share.
