American Jewish Historical Society. The monumental multi-year project to create one unified online catalog that provides integrated access to the magnificent holdings of the Center has reached a very significant milestone. On February 21, the Center s Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) went live internally at the Center; beginning in May, access will be universal. That means the new unified catalog can be searched not only by on-site users: the Center s OPAC will also be available on the Center s website so that anyone, anywhere, with an Internet connection, can search the holdings of all the Center partners from their home or work place. What makes our OPAC unique, says Bob Sink, the Center s Chief Archivist and Project Director, is that the systems Ex Libris software for the library and archive collections and KE for the museum collections are integrated, enabling browsers to search across systems to access library, archival and museum holdings. Users can conduct sophisticated searches by name, subject, geographic area, date and format across all of the materials held by the partners. The new unified system is important for the Center s internal workings as well, providing an efficient management system for the collections. The vast amount of Center materials makes cataloging an ambitious task that has taken several years to implement, as each partner has created catalog entries for its own holdings. The system today has 280,000 OPAC records in its database. By May, it will have over 300,000 bibliographic records, representing all of the partners archival collections and twothirds of their books. The goal is for the OPAC to have an entry describing each item or collection held by the partner organizations. In addition to the OPAC, the Center has installed DigiTool, a software package that will be used by the Center and its partners to catalog digital images, so that the public can have access to them. In recent years scholars, educators and students have come from all corners of the globe to conduct research at the Center for Jewish History. The OPAC will now open the pages of Jewish history preserved at the Center as they have never been before. From the Chair From the very beginning, one of the over-arching goals of the Center for Jewish History has been to provide an online catalog that will link together the varied collections housed at the Center and make the riches of our archival, library, and museum collections accessible worldwide. Five years ago, a federal grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission helped launch this technological journey. Today, as you will read, it is becoming a reality, making the memorable records of our Jewish past available to all. We often and rightfully boast about the magnitude of the vast holdings of our partners a treasure trove of texts, images, objects and experiences that are unparalleled in their depth and diversity. In this issue, we focus on the particular. We have asked the archivist, librarian or another staff member at each of the Center s five partner organizations to select and share with us one item from their collections that reflects a particular moment in Jewish history, conveys a particular insight about our Jewish past, or has particular relevance to the mission of the partner continued on page 2

2 A Record-Breaking Opening It was a tight fit at the December 5 opening of A Perfect Fit, as the line of visitors waiting to enter the Center extended onto the street and down the block. With some 530 guests, this was the best attended of any event to date at the Center for Jewish History. The reception celebrated the opening of the Yeshiva University Museum s exhibit, A Perfect Fit: The Garment Industry and American Jewry , which traces the history of 19th century Jewish immigrants seeking success in America, interlaced with 100 years of the garment industry. The evening also celebrated the designation of the Center for Jewish History as an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. On hand to make that relationship official was Dr. Brent Glass, Director of the Smithsonian s Museum of American History. The consortium that this Center has put together offered an opportunity for the Smithsonian to work with an educational institution, an archival and library organization, and a museum, said Dr. Glass. Dr. Brent Glass, Director, Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, addressing the large audience at the opening of A Perfect Fit. Added Bruce Slovin, Center Chairman: Our designation as a Smithsonian Affiliate is a significant recognition of the importance of the Center to both the Jewish and non-jewish communities in the U.S. and around the world. Other distinguished guests included Bruce Cole, Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which supported the exhibition with a $300,000 grant, and Richard M. Joel, President of Yeshiva University. During the formal program, one theme resonated throughout the remarks of every speaker who graced the dais. From the Center s Bruce Slovin to the NEH s Bruce Cole, each shared personal vignettes from their youth, as they warmly recalled their own parents and grandparents connection to the garment industry. That has been the impact of A Perfect Fit, touching the lives of so many visitors who have viewed this superb and evocative exhibit in recent months. Retrieving the Jewish Archive of Iraq In February 2005, the Center for Jewish History was asked by the White House to examine the contents of the Iraqi Jewish Archive, which in May of 2003 had been removed from the flooded basement of the Iraqi Intelligence Headquarters in Baghdad and was now in the United States. A brief examination found valuable artifacts, some in very poor condition. The story of the discovery of the Archive is as rich as the materials themselves. In 2003, a tip from the head of the Israel-Palestinian section of the Mukhabarat (Saddam Hussein s feared Secret Service) advised American troops of the existence of important Jewish books, documents and parchment scrolls in the basement of the Iraqi Intelligence Headquarters. In May of 2003, a select team of Americans joined Weapons of Mass Destruction investigators in rescuing the materials from the flooded Baghdad basement. First, they packed the wet materials in sacks, and then partially dried them before removing the trove in 27 metal trunks. The Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) took temporary custody of the materials and was able to freeze them to stabilize their condition before seeking advice from the United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which examined the materials and estimated the cost of preservation at several million dollars. On behalf of the United States Government, NARA was given temporary physical custody of the Archive, which is now stored in Washington, D.C., as well as responsibility for appropriate preservation and restoration. A proposal the Center for Jewish History submitted last June to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to conduct a preliminary survey and assessment of the collection has been conditionally approved by the NEH. The six-month project will include an assessment of the physical state of the collection, a determination of its contents, and the convening of an advisory panel of experts to help set priorities for its preservation. Results of the six-month project will be used to help plan future work to address the preservation needs of the entire collection. From the Chair continued from page 1 organization. You will read about five very different selections on the pages that follow. Preserving our heritage for the next generation, and bringing the kaleidoscope of the modern Jewish experience to an ever-growing public, is a daunting commitment that requires broad support. In recent months the Center and its partners have presented critically-acclaimed exhibitions, headliner programs, world-class speakers and a successful film festival. We are building our historical legacy every day. I invite you to join me in supporting this exciting endeavor. Bruce Slovin Chairman 2

3 A Rare Summer Student Experience Enrollment Closes May 15 It s intellectual, it s challenging, and it s fun, says a high school student who participated in the Samberg Program, which he remembers as a great way to spend the summer. That same unique experience now awaits up to 25 other high school juniors and seniors who enroll as 2006 Samberg High School Fellows and will spend four weeks this summer utilizing all the resources of the Center and New York City historic sites to explore their own family s Jewish roots while pursuing research into the Jewish past. In 2005, 16 applicants from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. applied to the program, which draws on all the rich resources of the Center its library, archival documents and photographs, its staff of curators, archivists and librarians, its state-of-the 2005 Summer Samberg Family History Program at the Center. art technology, and caring educators. As in the past, the 2005 Samberg Family History Program was built around three major components: workshops at the Center focusing on research methods; field trips to archives, historic sites, and different Jewish communities in the New York City area; and students independent research on their own family histories. In addition to trips to Ellis Island and the National Archives, visits to such places as the Bukharian Jewish community in Queens and the Janina Greek Synagogue on the Lower East Side underscored the variety of Jewish traditions. Said one student: I learned about a lot of Jewish communities that I barely knew existed. And I know where I come from now. Through the generosity of the Samberg Family Foundation, all students accepted into The Samberg Family History Program receive full tuition fellowships. (There is a minimal registration fee.) This funding makes it possible for a wide array of students, from more varied backgrounds than might otherwise be the case, to attend the Program. Several past Fellows stressed their appreciation of meeting and exchanging ideas with peers whose notions of Jewishness and Judaism were so different from their own. For more information about the 2006 program, contact Beth Bernstein, Program Manager, Samberg Family History Program, at (212) Award for Great Hall Artwork Luminous Manuscript, the large permanent artwork installed in the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Great Hall at the Center for Jewish History, was named a winner of the 2005 Religious Arts & Architecture Design Awards, cosponsored by Faith and Form Magazine and the Interfaith Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture. The honor was given to Pittsburgh-based artist Diane Samuels in the Visual Arts category. Ms. Samuels was awarded the commission for the Great Hall through an international competition supported by the Joseph S. and Diane H. Steinberg Charitable Trust. Comprised of alphabets and the handwritten word, and utilizing stone tiles and glass, the work initially gives the viewer the impression of an iridescent page of the Talmud. Upon closer approach, the work reveals itself as a multilayered mosaic of ever-proliferating detail.

4 TREASURES FROM THE COLLECTIONS On the pages that follow, the Center s five partner organizations have each chosen one selection from their rich holdings to present to our readers. Together, they underscore the fascinating diversity of materials preserved at the Center. AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY A Mirror to a Changing New York Children at the Hebrew Orphan Asylum, Cradled in Judea, the American Jewish Historical Society (AJHS) exhibit on view at the Center through June, tells the evolving story of Jewish orphanages in New York City from 1860 to The hand-scripted admission applications found in early orphanage ledgers, many of them in the collections of AJHS, reveal much more, says Lyn Slome, AJHS Director of Library and Archives. They are particularly rich in information and relevance to the history of the city s Jewish community, reflecting changing patterns of immigration, family size and structure, public health issues, occupations, health concerns and child care practices, and the impact of external events such as World War I. Consider the early ledgers of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum (HOA), New York s first Jewish orphanage, which opened its doors in 1860 with 30 children on what is now West 29th Street, and three years later moved to a facility large enough for 200 children on East 77th Street. Ms. Slome explains that this philanthropic endeavor was a joint effort between the Sephardic and Ashkenazic communities of New York, which realized they had to overcome their differences to support the needy of their community. In 1870 the Jewish population of New York City was 80,000, up from 16,000 twenty years earlier. An early orphanage ledger with applications from 1871 reveals demographics and other trends before the major immigration from Eastern Europe began in the mid-1880s. Applicants families were immigrants from Russia, the German provinces, England, Hungary, Holland. Each carefully scripted entry informs the reader who is applying, why, and whether they were admitted, where family members were born, the size of their family, their circumstances and needs. Many of the residents were not literally orphans. In 1872, for example, 99 of the orphanage s 172 residents were only half 4 orphans. Indigence and poverty were major reasons for committing children to the orphanage, as was disease. Tuberculosis was endemic and hospitalized many parents into the 20th century. Abandonment by the father and the inability to care for one s family are other frequently cited reasons. Home addresses from these early years are predominantly downtown New York street names, for example Maiden Lane Central Park had just been completed. Among recurring professions cigar manufacturer, cabinet maker, seamstress. Among not uncommon scenarios a widower abandoned his children who are being cared for by an uncle, who now is trying to have one of them accepted by the orphanage. There are many tales of sorrow: a father drowned in New Orleans and another died in the Sunnyside disaster, when a steamer went down in the Hudson in 1875, leaving his wife unable to care for all her children. During these very early years the support and administration for the orphanages came from wealthy philanthropists, who were personally involved in the vetting of the applicants. But their charity did not include personal attention and care was rigid, with infrequent family visits allowed. The emphasis was on integrating the American and Jewish identities of the children, reflecting the German Reform ideals on which these orphanages were established. The onset of major change came with the mass immigration from Eastern Europe. In 1905, for example, the Jewish population in New York City reached 672,000, and the HOA ledger reflects an increase in Yiddish-speaking applicants and a rise in orthodoxy, with applicants predominantly from the Bowery and Lower East Side. Orphanages met the needs of their new constituency and koshered their kitchens; religious practices and liturgy changed as well. A less rigid approach to care was also emerging. The children were allowed to speak Yiddish with their families, who could visit more often. Between the 1870 s and 1920 s other Jewish orphanages, reform and orthodox, opened in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Yonkers to meet the growing need. These institutions evolved over the decades in concert with advances in child care theory and practice and other communal and external factors. While the archive includes a great deal of material about this evolution, says Ms. Slome, the ledgers in their detail reflect the history of the Jewish community in New York City.

5 AMERICAN SEPHARDI FEDERATION A Liturgy Spanning Continents The American Sephardi Federation (ASF) has spent the past five years building the only public North American Library and Archives dedicated solely to the Sephardic experience. Today this collection boasts more than 4,200 catalogued books and 10,000 archival documents. Amongst the several important goals for our library, says Randall Belinfante, ASF Librarian/Archivist, has been to build a strong Sephardic collection with materials from all the countries where Sephardic Jews have lived throughout the ages and to which they emigrated after their expulsion from Spain in A 10-volume anthology of Sephardic liturgy from around the world, he explains, meets this criterion on its own. Obtaining these books for ASF took some doing by several people, among them Leon Levy, Honorary Lifetime President of ASF. In his travels around the world, he has come to know many prominent individuals, among them Yitzhak Navon, the fifth president of Israel ( ). Navon, whose family has lived in Jerusalem for over 300 years, descends from a long line of renowned Sephardic rabbis. He himself has authored two musical plays based on Sephardic folklore. Yitzhak Navon told Levy that a man named Isaac Levy had traveled widely, collecting tunes and liturgy from Sephardic communities everywhere, and that this compilation had been published. Leon Levy was unable to locate the work, but one day it literally appeared at his door, thanks to the efforts of Navon. Leon Levy purchased the set and gave it to ASF one of its This page from Isaac Levy s anthology features the traditional four questions of Passover in Ladino, part of the Sephardic liturgy for Passover. first library acquisitions. Today, the Antologia de Liturgia Judeo-Española sits on the reference shelves of the Center s Reading Room. Collecting this liturgy was the life achievement of Isaac Levy, a musicologist born in Turkey in 1919, who came to Jerusalem at the age of three. He studied music and singing, performed in public halls and on radio and television, directed the daily broadcasts in Judeo-Spanish on Israeli national radio (Kol Israel) beginning in 1955, and later also directed its folk music division. Unfortunately, before Isaac Levy died in 1977, he told his wife and daughter to destroy his research tapes, apparently fearing that others would critique his work and he could not defend himself. As a result, the anthology is Levy s primary musical legacy. His legacy also lives on through the efforts of his daughter, 5 Yasmin Levy, a popular singer of music in the Ladino/ Judeo-Spanish tradition, which she mixes with Andalusian flamenco. Volume one (1965) of the anthology includes an introductory appreciation of Isaac Levy by Yitzhak Navon. In a prologue, Levy expressed the hope that his work would not only be a living testimonial to Sephardic Jewry, but that it should also serve as a strong inspiration for composers and music lovers so that these authentic Sephardic songs and liturgical poems would live on. Levy s work provides an all-encompassing survey of the Ladino/Judeo-Spanish liturgical tradition. There is liturgy for the Sabbath, the High Holidays and festivals throughout the year; special songs for weddings, births and Bar Mitzvahs; and other special songs. The volumes include representative liturgy, with music, originating in such diverse communities as Cairo, Salonica, Sarajevo, Tetuán, Amsterdam, Sofia, Malta, Casablanca, Fez, Constantinople and Jerusalem. Levy typically presents two or more versions of each piece describing the significantly different forms the music took in the different countries of the Sephardic diaspora. He then tries to express the music using musical notation, Hebrew and transliteration into Latin characters. The final volume was completed after Levy s death, and was published in 1980 in his memory. AMERICAN SEPHARDI FEDERATION Representing the Diverse Spectrum of Sephardic Jews in the United States

6 LEO BAECK INSTITUTE Celebrating Franz Rosenzweig: A 40th Birthday Portfolio Rosenzweig s major work, The Star of Redemption, was written in part on postcards he sent home from the trenches when he was serving in the German army at the end of World War I. Rosenzweig is standing figure. As difficult as it is to select only one of the items in the remarkable collections of the Leo Baeck Institute, it is possible to highlight the Birthday Portfolio for the prominent Jewish thinker, Franz Rosenzweig ( ), because of its unique contribution to understanding German-Jewish history before the Holocaust. Dr. Frank Mecklenburg, Director of Research and Chief Archivist at the Leo Baeck Institute, notes that this folio reflects the revival of Jewish life in Germany after World War I. Jewish life blossomed during certain periods more than others and the 1920 s was certainly one of those productive eras. It was Martin Buber who had the idea of collecting a Birthday Portfolio for the 40th Birthday of the celebrated philosopher and educator, who was already physically quite disabled and limited in the use of his limbs and speech due to a chronic disease. But he was also already one of the most important Jewish thinkers, having completed a major work on Hegel, having written the now classic volume The Star of Redemption as well as The New Thinking, and having begun work on translating the Hebrew Bible into modern German, a project undertaken with Martin Buber. It was Buber who proposed specifications for the birthday contributions they were to be handwritten and no longer than one page of portfoliosize paper, a format that would facilitate Rosenzweig s reading them. Sheets of special paper were forwarded to potential contributors, requesting that they be returned within three weeks. The group of 46 men and women who responded was as 6 diverse as Rosenzweig s interests. All of them had been affected, influenced or inspired by Rosenzweig. They came from all walks of life and included personal friends as well as professional colleagues. Among the most prominent: Martin Buber, Nobel Prize author S.Y. Agnon, Leo Baeck, Nahum Glatzer, Friedrich Meinecke, Gershom Scholem, Ernst Simon, and Karl Wolfskehl. Buber s own contribution was a preliminary draft of the Martin Buber provided a preliminary draft of the translation of Psalm 40 as his 40th birthday gift to the ailing Rosenzweig. translation of the 40th Psalm from their joint Bible project. Before Rosenzweig s death three years later, in 1929, they were able to finalize volumes one through ten (Genesis-Isaiah). Among the treasures of the extensive Rosenzweig collection in the Leo Baeck Institute is a box that contains 22 notebooks, totaling more than 2000 pages, about the translation project. Because Rosenzweig was already afflicted with his paralyzing disease, the notebooks were dictated. Buber completed the Bible project alone many years later. In 1986, to mark the centennial of Franz Rosenzweig s birth, the Leo Baeck Institute published a limited facsimile edition of this portfolio, along with an introduction and complete translation by Dr. Martin Goldner, who had been Secretary of the Buber Rosenzweig Freies Jüdisches Lehrhaus in Frankfurt and was himself one of the 46 contributors. This collector s item is available for purchase through the Leo Baeck Institute by contacting Dr. Mecklenburg. LEO BAECK INSTITUTE Documenting the Vibrant Life of German- Speaking Jewry

7 YESHIVA UNIVERSITY MUSEUM A Powerful Political Statement by a Jewish Conceptual Artist One of the first contemporary artworks in the Yeshiva University Museum collection is a large-scale work by Luis Camnitzer, a prominent political conceptual artist who was born in Germany in 1937, and immigrated with his parents to Uruguay in 1939, where he was raised. He came to the United States in the 1960 s. Leftovers is a very important piece for the Museum, says Sylvia Herskowitz, Director of the Museum. A large and powerful, politically-charged work created in 1970, Leftovers has been exhibited internationally. It traveled for several years as part of a series of exhibitions organized by the international division of the Museum of Modern Art. Most recently, the work was shown in Paris, in a 20th anniversary exhibit at the Pompidou Centre called Face à l Histoire, and at the Tate/Liverpool in England. The work is composed of a wall of 80 ordinary cardboard cartons wrapped in what appears to be bloodstained gauze, with two acrylic pools Luis Camnitzer, Leftovers, Paint, gauze, plastic and cardboard (80 boxes), 80"x127"x8" of blood placed on the floor at the foot of the stacks of boxes. Each carton is stenciled with the word leftover and has a Roman numeral on it, representing an anonymous victim as one of many leftovers of destruction. Active in the politicallycharged student movement in Uruguay, Camnitzer has always followed a socio-political agenda. I am more interested in an art about context and content rather than about its means and ways of representation, he has written. Technical virtuosity is about convincing the viewer that the work is the perfect incarnation of the intention. The storyline for Camnitzer and for our museum in looking at this piece, says Gabriel Goldstein, YUM s Associate Director for Exhibitions and Programs, is not only the political liberation movement in Uruguay and the repressive murders in Uruguay and Latin America, but also the experience of the Holocaust and mass murder. Camnitzer s work resonates with many themes the struggle for freedom in Latin America, the destruction of the individual through mass murder, and the artist s attempt to reclaim the individual through memorial and art. A new exhibition tentatively titled The Jewish Presence in Latin American Art of the Twentieth Century, is being planned for 2008 jointly by the Yeshiva University Museum and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum of Rutgers University. It will be presented simultaneously at YUM, at the Zimmerli Art Museum, the Krasdale Art Galleries in the Bronx, and the Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts Galleries on the Rutgers campus. In this upcoming exhibition, the Camnitzer work will be featured at YUM. Says Gabriel Goldstein: We expect the works that will be shown at the Yeshiva University Museum to more clearly look at issues of Jewish identity and Jewish expression and issues of personal freedom through a Holocaust and post- Holocaust lens.

8 YIVO INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH RESEARCH Plucked From the Fire Among the treasures of the YIVO library is a small quarto volume bearing the double imprint Warsaw/Cracow and the date It is the only Yiddish book printed in Poland with this date. Perhaps intended for release in 1940, it was apparently completed in Warsaw in the summer of It is probable that all other copies of the book, if indeed a whole edition was printed, were lost after the outbreak of war or in the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto. One copy, sent to New York in July 1939, contains a handwritten dedication to the American Yiddish writer Joseph Opatoshu. This copy alone survived and eventually reached the YIVO library. Entitled Kritishe minyaturn, the book is a collection of brief sketches by the young German-born critic Joseph Wulf ( ), who had been educated in Poland and at French universities. The last volume of Yiddish literary criticism issued in Poland before the destruction of Polish Jewry, it deals with the whole range of modern Yiddish literature, from Sholem Aleichem to such figures as Itsik Manger and Rachel Korn. Its sketches on European writers discuss H. G. Wells, Shaw, André Maurois, Céline, François Villon and Cervantes. The book s preface, written by the poet M. Shimel who later died in the Holocaust, refers to this new, young, dedicated talent, with a European education and passionately connected to our Yiddishland. The volume also includes a pen-and-ink portrait of the author by the artist Ber Horovits, who was Pen-and-ink portrait of Joseph Wulf, author of Kritishe minyaturn, by artist Ber Horovits. also killed by the Nazis. Wulf himself, after spending nearly two years in Auschwitz, settled in Paris, where he wrote for the Yiddish press. Shadowed by his experiences, Wulf collaborated on many German books on the subject of the Third Reich, before his tragic death, by suicide, in Berlin. This unique and nearly-lost volume, which reflects the vitality of modern Yiddish culture on the eve of its annihilation, is one of a number of Yiddish books released in Warsaw and 8 elsewhere in Poland just before the Holocaust. Among these are volumes of poems by Rejzl Zychlinska and Z. Segalowicz, Manger s Dos bukh fun gan-eydn, C. Grade s Musernikes, and the very rare memorial volume for the founder of the Bund, Arkadi, almost all of whose copies were lost. Equally rare are the books printed in Vilna in 1940 (after the transfer of the Polish city to independent Lithuania), such as Sutzkever s poem Valdiks. YIVO s collection of these Yiddish brands plucked from the fire is unequalled in the world. YIVO also holds the single Hebrew book printed in Warsaw with the date 1940, namely, the translation of Suetonius De vita Caesarum ( The Lives of the Caesars ) by the distinguished classicist and ancient historian E. M. Stein ( ). Chairman of the Union of Hebrew Writers of Warsaw, Stein was later killed at Trawniki, near Lublin. (This Hebrew bibliographic treasure is also preserved in the Kressel library at Oxford, and in a few other collections.) Even rarer is the Hebrew liturgical commentary by one of the greatest Talmudic scholars in interwar Poland, R. Baruch Epstein ( ), who died during the Holocaust. Epstein s Barukh she-amar, which also includes his commentary on Avot, was printed in Pinsk in 1939, one of the last rabbinic works issued in Poland. YIVO s copy is one of two known surviving copies of this book.

9 Fourth Gala Dinner Some 200 good friends of the Center and members of the partner organizations gathered in the Paul S. and Sylvia Steinberg Great Hall on November 30 for the fourth Annual Board of Directors and Board of Overseers Dinner, which raised just under $900,000 for the programs of the Center. The elegant evening got underway with welcome remarks by Chairman Bruce Slovin, who thanked the Avivith Oppenheim, Tracey Berkowitz and Nancy Stahl. guests for their generous support. The program also featured the presentation of the Sandra P. and Frederick P. Rose Young Historian Award to Lila Corwin Berman. Ms. Berman, received the award for her book, A Jewish Marilyn Monroe and Tales of Other Jews Who Transformed America and Themselves. The featured speaker was Leon Wieseltier, author and From right to left: Bruce Slovin, Francesca Slovin, Joseph Becker, Leon Levy and Esme Berg. literary editor of The New Republic, who addressed the topic, History, Not Memory. Said Mr. Wieseltier: The accomplishments of this institution encourage me in my desire to defend the charisma of history. The archives in this building demonstrate again and again that if myth is magical, knowledge is magical too. The evening concluded with a performance by cabaret artist Karen Kohler, who sang the songs of Kurt Weill. Springtime is Prime Time to Update Your Estate Plan Putting your IRA to charitable use is a beneficial way to preserve and enrich the understanding of our Jewish past. There are different ways to use IRAs in your retirement plans to make a lasting commitment to the Center of Jewish History while realizing significant income tax and estate tax savings. MAKE A GIFT NOW You are required to begin distributions from your IRA on April 1 following the year you reach These required distributions are usually fully taxable as ordinary income. You can donate part or all of your required distribution each year to the Center for Jewish History. Such a gift will entitle you to an income tax deduction that should completely offset the income tax on your distribution. Charitable gifts do not have to be limited to required distributions. You can withdraw assets from your IRA at any time after age without paying a penalty. While your distribution will most likely be completely taxable as ordinary income, you will get an offsetting deduction by donating the distribution to the Center. (For larger contributions, you may not be able to deduct the full value of the contribution because of limits on the percentage of one s income that may be deducted for charitable contributions.) NAME THE CENTER AS BENEFICIARY OF ASSETS REMAINING IN YOUR IRA AFTER YOUR LIFETIME IRAs are considered among the smartest assets to leave to charity, since they are subject to unusually heavy taxation if left to your heirs. They are not only subject to estate tax in your estate (if left to beneficiaries other than your spouse), but also to income tax when withdrawn by your beneficiaries. Both taxes are completely avoided if the Center is named the beneficiary of assets remaining in your IRA after your lifetime. Your IRA can also be left to a charitable remainder trust that can provide income to your spouse, a friend, a sibling, a child or grandchild for life or a term of years. After the term of the trust, the Center for Jewish History would receive the principal. Income tax would be completely avoided on the transfer of assets to the Center. And, estate tax would be avoided if your spouse is the beneficiary for life, followed by the remainder to the Center. As your choice of beneficiary will not only affect how assets are distributed at death, but also how your mandatory lifetime distributions are calculated, it is important that this be discussed with your financial advisor. 9
