Jewish Women's Archive
The Jewish Women's Archive and CECI have collaborated since the Fall of 1997 on creating a web presence for the JWA. The archive's mission is to uncover, chronicle and transmit the historical record of Jewish women's lives, their impact on Jewish culture and their active participation in society at large.
Part of this mission is create a "virtual archive" accessible over the Internet. The virtual archive establishes collections that can be searched without regard to geographical distance and takes advantage of multiple virtual contexts, while preserving the integrity of the individual physical repositories in which resources on Jewish women are physically housed. Currently users can do searches not only for specific women but also for occupations, dates, subjects, repositories, collections, as well as journals, letters and other collection types.
In addition to the virtual archive, CECI has worked on "Women of Valor,"an extensive series of multimedia exhibits created each year for Women's History Month. These exhibits have focused on three women each year with content and research provided by JWA and design and technology provided by CECI. At this date exhibits for nine women have been completed and include:
Funders include the Dorot Foundation and the Charles E. Revson Foundation.
