The Leiman Library of Judaica located in Kew Gardens Hills, N.Y. has launched an exhibit of over 200 depictions of rabbis on stamps. The stamps are arranged by rabbi, in chronological order. Thus, the list opens with Rabbi Joshua b. Hananiah, a second century C.E. rabbi, and closes with Rabbi Yonah Metzger, Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi of Israel, alive and well in the 21st century. In every entry, there is a listing of the name of the rabbi, the date of his death (or birth, if still living), the country of origin of the stamp, and the year of publication of the stamp.

16 mm Postcards, on view at Yeshiva University Museum August 2010 – January 2011, brings to life the landscape and people in Poland through the amateur movies of immigrant American Jews who traveled “back home” to visit their families, friends, and former communities in the 1920s and 1930s. Intended to be viewed by family and fellow landsmen (friends from the Old Country), these films offer a rare, intimate and—quite literally—moving picture of Jewish families, towns and society in pre-World War II Poland.
