YIVO Institute for Jewish Research


YIVO is dedicated to fostering knowledge of the ongoing story of Jewish life, with a focus on the history and culture of East European Jewry—the ancestry of a significant proportion of Jews in the world today. This story has played an important role in shaping the times we live in. Scholars continue to uncover new layers of the story in our archives and library, one of the world's most important resources on Jewish life and history in Europe; Yiddish language, literature, and folklore; the Holocaust; and the American Jewish immigrant experience. YIVO brings their discoveries and insights to you and treasures from our collections through public programs, courses, exhibitions, award-winning publications, and websites.
