The Archives of Jewish Education in Israel and the Diaspora constitute
a resource center for the history of Jewish education. It was established in the
1950's by the Teacher's Union who recognized the need to preserve the documents
and papers generated by the educational system in Israel which had been
developing from the beginning of the century when the first national secular
schools were founded. At the same time the archives are a depository for the
remnants of materials collected from the many educational systems of no longer
surviving Jewish communities world wide.
Located at Tel Aviv University and run by the School of Education under the
supervision of the State Archivist, the Archives of Jewish Education work to
create links with educators and educational institutions in Israel and the
Diaspora. Teachers, educators, students and teachers-in-training utilize this
rich resource, which includes materials written and created in the classroom, by
teachers and professional organizations, and in the community.
The collections are professionally stored and catalogued and open to
researchers, subject to accepted procedures.
The Archives, in collaboration with the joint academic Schools of
Education in Israel, publish a scientific periodical, Dor le Dor, dedicated
to study and documentation of the history of Jewish education in the Diaspora
and in Israel.
