The New England Jewish Music Forum was a non-profit organization created in 1958 committed to presenting performances of Jewish music in the Boston area. The organization closed its doors in 1990 after thirty-two years due to financial hardship and low membership. The collection includes meeting minutes, by-laws, and finances, as well as photographs of forum events, performance programs and brochures, correspondence, newspaper clippings, and concert files.
The Yiddish Phonograph Record Collection consists of 57 records, including three named compilation albums of cantorial and holiday music. The records contain a variety of types of music, including classical, instrumental, folk songs, opera, cantorial music, and Yiddish interpretations of popular songs of the day. A few records also contain Yiddish storytelling and monologues from theater performances, and some are in languages other than Yiddish, including Hebrew, English, and Russian.
