DO NOT DONATE UNTIL YIVO FIXES THIS #YIVOSHANDA
DO NOT DONATE TO YIVO UNTIL THIS SHANDA IS CLEARED UP. SOMETHING IS ROTTEN ON 16TH STREET. #YIVOShanda We know about your Shanda. It is always better to own up to it, fix it, and move forward. And organization like YIVO can live through this. Hire the librarians back, fire the Director who should not be there since it is not the RIVO, but it is the YIVO Yes, we all know the R stands for Russian. Brent can pretend he is 'saddened' but there is no honesty in the reasons behind the firings. We know that and we are letting other people know that.
The biographical dictionary is: Leksikon fun der nayer yidisher literatur Looking for info on PINKHES GUDMAN (PINCUS GOODMAN) PINKHES GUDMAN (PINCUS GOODMAN) (April 1881-January 1947) - he's my great grandfather Do you have copies of his poetry by chance? Do you have a bio in English? This info is what I have so far: PINKHES GUDMAN (PINCUS GOODMAN) PINKHES GUDMAN (PINCUS GOODMAN) (April 1881-January 1947) He was born in Łowicz, Warsaw region, Poland, into a family of poor tradesmen. He studied in religious primary school and on his own in the synagogue study hall. At age thirteen he lost his father and mother during an epidemic. He became a weaver in Lodz. Early in the twentieth century, he emigrated to the United States, where until his final days he was employed in silk-weaving in Paterson, New Jersey. He published poems in the Forverts (Forward), Dovid Pinski’s Arbayter (Worker), and Fraye arbeter shtime (Free voice of labor)—all in New York. Among his books: Der veber, lider (The weaver, poems) (Paterson, 1922), 38 pp.; In geshpan, lider un gedikhtn (In harness, songs and poems) (New York, 1923), 160 pp., second enlarged edition (New York, 1926), 303 pp.; In geshpan, vol. 2 (New York, 1932), 271 pp.; In geshpan, vol. 3 (Paterson, 1940), 260 pp.; In geshpan, vol. 4 (New York, 1945), 262 pp.; In geshpan, vol. 5 (Paterson, 1951), 240 pp. Sources: Zalmen Reyzen, Leksikon, vol. 1; P.

YIVO has some serious explaining to do to the scholarly community and all researchers of your collections. If this story is true, please justify your actions. I am head of the music library at Princeton University. YIVO has one of the great collections of Yiddish music. You cannot manage and direct usage of this collection without expert librarians. I myself am not Jewish, but I did pick up some Yiddish while working at Brandeis University as the Creative Arts Librarian: Schande.
I am taking my first online class at YIVO on Ashkenazi history and Culture and very pelted to have this opportunity.

On August 5, 2019 I discovered my father in law's 3 children were hidden by Christians and survived the Holocaust. Their parents were Liba Baumel Lewin, murdered at Treblinka and Chaskiel Majer Lewin who went to Bolivia in 1938. The children appeared in a list of Polish Children Survivors in the book "Survivors of the Holocaust in Poland. A Portrait Based on Jewish Community Records 1944-1947" by Dr. Lucjan Dobroszcki, a YIVO researcher.The children's names were Lejbus Pesach born c. 1928, Jure Ester born c. 1930 and Mordkaj Jakub born c. 1933.For 72 years my family believed the children had been murdered by the Nazis at Treblinka death camp. We are now searching for them and/or their descendants as well as the people who risked their lives to hide 3 Jewish children in Nazi occupied Poland. We don't know whether they stayed in Poland under new identities or left for another country. Hoping someone will recognize their photo or their story and reach out to my family. Thank you for all your help
I registered for your Folklore course on Friday. I got the emails and followed instructions. My bank shows you have my money. Your site says I am not registered for any courses. I called the phone number and of course got a recording. The previous free course was excellent, so I was expecting the same.

The world’s premier academic institute devoted to teaching and the study of East European Jewish history, language and culture. [This page aims to share news relevant to the Jewish community at large - articles shared are not endorsements.]

Founded in 1925, YIVO is headquartered in NYC and is the world’s premier academic institute devoted to teaching and the study of East European Jewish history, language and culture and their influence in America. Home of the largest collection of Holocaust primary documentation in North America... A world-renowned archives and library of Jewish history and culture... An educational organization with online and on-site courses and the world’s oldest intensive Yiddish language program… Presenter of acclaimed exhibitions, concerts, and lectures... The only prewar Jewish cultural institution to have survived the Holocaust and a leader in training generations of Jewish Studies scholars. Charity Navigator - Four Stars, Guidestar Gold Participant

The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research was founded by scholars and intellectuals in Vilna, Poland, in 1925 to document and study Jewish life in all its aspects: language, history, religion, folkways, and material culture. YIVO had a special focus on the Jews of Eastern Europe, but collected books, manuscripts and other artifacts from Jewish communities around the world. It grew to be a beloved communal institution with active members from Buenos Aires to Shanghai. World War II and the Holocaust forced YIVO’s relocation to New York in 1940. Its collections in Vilna were looted by the Nazis. Jews were forced to sort through YIVO's materials and many risked their lives to smuggle some of the rare treasures to hiding places in the Vilna Ghetto. With the help of the U.S. Army, YIVO was able to recover some of the materials that the Nazis seized and begin its work anew in America. After the war, some of the materials hidden in the ghetto were recovered, but needed to be rescued once again, this time from the Soviets. A courageous Lithuanian librarian, Antanas Ulpis, kept them hidden for over 40 years. Rediscovered in 1988, these materials are now held in the Lithuanian Central State Archives and Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania. Today, YIVO’s collections are the primary source of the documentary history of East European Jewry and the surviving record of millions of lives of Jewish victims of the Holocaust. YIVO brings treasures from its library and archives to broad audiences via a rich array of programs, including lectures, concerts, and exhibitions; adult education and Yiddish-language programs and courses; books and scholarly publications; and fellowships for scholars. In 2015, YIVO launched The Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Collections Project, a $5.6 million, 7-year landmark digital initiative to reunites YIVO’s divided prewar library and archival collections and remants of the famed Strashun Library through a dedicated web portal. It is a partnership between the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, the Lithuanian Central State Archives, and the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania.

The Covenant Foundation

"Food is a vehicle through which Jews (and all cultures for that matter) carry their stories and traditions, their memories of the ‘Old Country,’ and a living body of folk wisdom."

Ben Kaplan, Director of Education at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, writes how traditional Ashkenazi Jewish food goes beyond the usual stereotypes (dull, brown, heavy), and how we can reclaim the richer culinary elements of this cuisine by digging deep into history.

To guide the Jewish community in doing just that, YIVO, together with a team of food scholars and historians, cookbook authors, and chefs, is developing "A Seat at the Table: A Journey into Jewish Food," a new online course, created with support from The Covenant Foundation.

This piece is the fourth article in a series on EJewish Philanthropy about the connection between Jewish identity, food, and the natural environment, written by Covenant grantees and partners.

Our Story

The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research was founded by scholars and intellectuals in Vilna, Poland, in 1925 to document and study Jewish life in all its aspects: language, history, religion, folkways, and material culture. YIVO had a special focus on the Jews of Eastern Europe, but collected books, manuscripts and other artifacts from Jewish communities around the world. It grew to be a beloved communal institution with active members from Buenos Aires to Shanghai. World War II and the Holocaust forced YIVO’s relocation to New York in 1940. Its collections in Vilna were looted by the Nazis. Jews were forced to sort through YIVO's materials and many risked their lives to smuggle some of the rare treasures to hiding places in the Vilna Ghetto. With the help of the U.S. Army, YIVO was able to recover some of the materials that the Nazis seized and begin its work anew in America. After the war, some of the materials hidden in the ghetto were recovered, but needed to be rescued once again, this time from the Soviets. A courageous Lithuanian librarian, Antanas Ulpis, kept them hidden for over 40 years. Rediscovered in 1988, these materials are now held in the Lithuanian Central State Archives and Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania. Today, YIVO’s collections are the primary source of the documentary history of East European Jewry and the surviving record of millions of lives of Jewish victims of the Holocaust. YIVO brings treasures from its library and archives to broad audiences via a rich array of programs, including lectures, concerts, and exhibitions; adult education and Yiddish-language programs and courses; books and scholarly publications; and fellowships for scholars. In 2015, YIVO launched The Edward Blank YIVO Vilna Collections Project, a landmark digital initiative to reunites YIVO’s divided prewar library and archival collections and remnants of the famed Strashun Library through a dedicated web portal. In 2017, 170,000 pages of previously unknown documents, lost to history for almost 70 years , were discovered in Vilnius, Lithuania. The project is a partnership between the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, the Lithuanian Central State Archives, the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania, and the Wroblewski Library of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences, and includes the cataloging, conservation, and digitization of documents and books in both New York and Vilnius.
