Collections

The Program in Jewish Studies, in conjunction with the University Libraries' Special Collections and Archives, the CU Art Museum, and the Boulder Public Library's Maria Rogers Oral History Project is building an exciting collection of archival holdings directly related to Jewish studies fields in history, visual culture, art and art history, religious studies, international law, and political science.  

The Lebowitz Collection of Twentieth-Century Jewish-American Literature, the Post Holocaust American Judaism Collection, the Through Soviet Jewish Eyes Collection, the Fingesten Collection, and the Movers Archives are all exclusive to the CU archives. These excellent resources will help continue CU's growth as a world-class institution supporting Jewish Studies.  In addition, these collections will catalyze the educational growth of a new crop of scholars ready to conduct original research, develop critical thinking and writing skills, and gain valuable insight into the ways in which how one develops a library, archive, human rights group, or religious movement.
