Capital Jewish Museum Digital Collecting (American Jewish Life)

Capital Jewish Museum Digital Collecting (American Jewish Life)
History is happening now. It is often difficult to step back and see the wider picture, but our experiences in this pandemic are a moment in history, and one we must preserve. In the midst of this crisis, synagogues post updates about closures and re-openings, rabbinical councils issue guidance, and social media posts respond to illness, injustice, and unemployment. Much of this will be lost if we don’t retain a record. Thus, we have partnered with George Mason University in creating American Jewish Life as a part of the new Pandemic Religion digital archive. We invite you to share materials that exemplify your personal experiences, or that document your community’s activities and responses to the pandemic. American Jewish Life collects images, videos, audio files, texts, and more.
