Leo Baeck Institute – New York and Berlin
' The Leo Baeck Institute is devoted to the history and culture of German-speaking Jews. Part of an international network with additional centers in London and Jerusalem, LBI – New York | Berlin documents and engages this legacy through its library and archival collections and public programs.
It was initially assumed that this project would take the form of a long-term historical project, preparing a comprehensive work on the history of German Jewry. With the expectation that this would not last more than a decade, institute members concentrated entirely on research projects and filling in the history of German Jewry from the Enlightenment to the Nazi seizure of power.
The Institute offers free and open access to most of its collections. Many of its materials have been digitized and are available online at www.lbi.org.
One can also search the online catalog, which provides an inventory of digital as well as physical holdings. The Leo Baeck search engine can be found here: http://www.lbi.org/digibaeck/#form_adv
