Decade of Discovery Celebrating 40 Years of the Yiddish Book Center

Over the past forty years, the Yiddish Book Center has rescued over a million Yiddish books, providing a window onto a thousand years of Jewish history that was almost lost, and launched a wide range of innovative bibliographic, educational, and cultural programs to share these treasures with the world. This month, in honor of the fortieth anniversary of the Yiddish Book Center in 2020, we're featuring items that speak to our history, accomplishments, and dreams for the future.
