This impressive facility contains the largest collection of American Jewish documents in the world.  Founded in 1947, the archives was established by Dr. Jacob Rader Marcus in the aftermath of the European Holocaust when American Jews inherited a primary responsibility of preserving the continuity of Jewish life and learning for future generations.  Today the AJA houses over ten million pages of documentation. It contains nearly 8,000 linear feet of archives, manuscripts, nearprint materials, photographs, audio and video tape, microfilm, and genealogical materials.
