Review for Jewish Women's Archive, Brookline, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

With minimal financial support, JWA has organized a treasure of previously neglected and largely unknown American history, made it accessible to the public easily via the Web, and vigorously promoted the availability and the value of this history. In its work, the JWA has activated and engaged a segment of the population that has not previously been involved in "history." Consequently, it has created a new market for new (neglected) American history. This is no small feat; and one of great importance in an age where "history" is yesterday and "ancient history" is last year.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Most professional and very dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

become the leading popolarizer of history in the American Jewish world
