Grassroots materials are SJMAP’s focus

Help us locate ephemera from the grassroots Soviet Jewry movement that remain in private collections. Many activists, during the period of 1963 to 1991 worked out of their own homes, so this material might be found tucked away in a home office, basement, attic, or garage. The Soviet Jewry Movement Archives Project (SJMAP)  is working to identify such grassroots activism collections and guide them to appropriate archival locations.

SJMAP does not function as an archival repository.  

SJMAP is not an archives.  SJMAP is a virtual hub with a website designed to link to relevant material that is located in historical centers and archives across North America and beyond.  SJMAP’s goal is to make the history of the grassroots movement easily accessible from one online location.  As collections are identified and processed, SJMAP’s virtual hub will grow. 

SJMAP will function as a matchmaker, a coach, and a guide for material donors.

Once you contact SJMAP about possible historical materials that document the grassroots Soviet Jewry movement, we will contact you to further discuss.

The records of this powerful grassroots movement must not be lost to history.

Please help us locate these records.

Please help us fund the digitization of this material. 

Please note:  It is the responsibility of the donor of materials to identify possible sensitive information that is contained in these materials.
