Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi walking with students The Innovations in Jewish Life Collections are focused on examining Judaism and the Jewish-American experience from roughly the late 1940s to the present. The material collected aims to shed light on the religious, cultural, and social movements of American Judaism as well as to illustrate various philosophies of Judaism and Jewish organizations in the relevant period.

The website also has information about the archival process as well as our other Post-Holocaust initiatives, including the biannual Embodied Judaism symposia, fellowships for graduate students and visiting scholars, and ways to support the collections. 

The Innovations in Jewish Life Collections is a partnership between the Program in Jewish Studies and Special Collections and Archives, a department of CU University Libraries.
