Using Israeli Archives & Resources
For Worldwide Jewish Records

Guest Speaker: Michael Goldstein
Israel holds a treasure of data relating to Jews who have lived in Palestine
or Israel--as well as those who never set foot in the Holy Land. The
presentation will include an exploration of such prominent Israeli archives
as The Hebrew University and National Library, the Joint Distribution
Committee, The Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People, Yad
Vashem, and more. Mr. Goldstein will touch on the importance of each as a
repository for records, books, photos and documents, as well as their
particular area of concentration. In addition, he will explore a range of
known and lesser-known sources
consisting of Israeli government databases, cemetery records,
landsmenshafts, and others.
