United Jewish Appeal-Federation of New York Collection I-433
Over the course of a four-year project, the American Jewish Historical Society has organized, described, and made available over two thousand boxes of archival material connected with the projects, history and philanthropic mission of UJA-Federation of New York.
This project was generously funded by United Jewish Appeal-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York in partnership with the American Jewish Historical Society.
United Jewish Appeal-Federation of Jewish Philanthropies of New York (UJA-Fed of NY) has been a central force for communal planning and philanthropy in the New York Jewish community since 1917. More than 60,000 donors pool their resources to help people in need, inspire a passion for Jewish life and learning, and strengthen Jewish communities around the world.
