Share Your Memories of the Yiddish Book Center

The Yiddish Book Center's Memories Project

To celebrate the Yiddish Book Center’s 40th anniversary in 2020, we’re looking back at the Yiddish Book Center’s storied history. As part of this effort, we’re asking our members and friends to share their memories of the Yiddish Book Center.

We’re happy to collect these memories in many formats – text, photographs, audio and video recordings, ephemera – whether it’s a ticket stub with a story about attending an event, a letter to or from the Center, a short recollection you’ve recorded, or a photo of your visit to the Center. We’d love to see and hear all about it!

Everything you send will go into our permanent archive, and some may even be featured in Pakn Treger, on our website, on a podcast, and in social media.

We've made it very simple to share your memories in any format via this webform. If you have files larger than 2MB in size, or any questions about how to submit memories in different formats, you can email us at [email protected].

Why delay? Join the simkhe (celebration) and send your zikhroynes (memories) today!

Please complete the online form below. Our online form allows you to save a draft of your application. Click the “save draft” button at the bottom of the page, enter your e-mail, and you’ll be sent a personalized link to return to your draft at any time.
