2013-2014 Library Enhancement Grant

Drs. Jack Kugelmass and Rebecca Jefferson have been awarded a Library Enhancement Grant in the Humanities for 2014 to help fund the acquisition of the Buenos Aires Yiddish daily Di prese.

Since the 1880s, Argentina was a major destination for migrating Jews and became a cultural hub for Yiddish publications.
