The original digital collection of Jewish Archives photographs was produced partially by funding by contributions from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, the Rachel and Nissim Altabet Memorial Fund, and the 4Culture organization. The information for the collection was researched and prepared by the UW Libraries Special Collections and Cataloging staff in 2005-2009. Since 2009, Special Collections has continued to digitize photographs in the Jewish Archives to add to this online collection.

Oral Histories

The Jewish Archives Committee of the WSJHS has recorded interviews with Jewish community members across Washington State since 1968. For several years, with funding from individuals in the community, the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, and others, Special Collections staff have digitally transferred these recordings from the original audio cassette tapes. Consequently, many of the oral histories recorded since 1968 are available online. The Archives Committee continues to interview individuals for this project, and these born digital recordings are also added to this digital collection.
