You can also read brief write-ups on the history and holdings of some of the most significant archives for Jewish history. It is, of course, not feasible to create a comprehensive encyclopedic resource (for now!) but it is our hope that the directory and these write-ups will offer useful information for those who are pursuing research in Jewish archives, and who are interested in their history.
