Series XII. Jewish Affiliations, 1928-1975

Scope and Content Notes:

Series XII contains materials for the Pittsburgh Section's Jewish affiliations. The NCJW Pittsburgh Section has been involved in many local, national, and international Jewish affairs. They have also founded institutions (Columbia School-IKS), participated in the founding of others (Conference of Jewish Women's Organizations), and have provided support for many more.

The Jewish Organizations subseries contains information on the Community Relations Committee, at one time the Joint Public Relations Committee; the Jewish Public Relations Council; the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC); the Irene Kaufmann Settlement; the United Jewish Fund; and the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies. For more information on the JCRC the researcher should refer to the Papers of Lillian A. Friedberg (ais 2000:04)on deposit with the Archives Service Center. Friedberg served as Executive Director of the JCRC from 1943 to 1965.

Also in this series are materials regarding the Expanded Overseas Program, the Israel Education Project, Seymour Fox Operation, Soviet Jewry programs, workshops and training, Community Leadership Training Program (CLTP), and information on the Evening and South Hills Branches.
