Detailed Collection Information 
 
Historical Note
In 1972, the Women’s Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, then known as the Federation of Jewish Agencies of Greater Philadelphia, began an oral history project to record the reminiscences of influential members of the Philadelphia Jewish community.  The Council’s Oral History Project Committee initially interviewed elderly members of the community and particularly sought out those who served in leadership positions for the Federation.  The oral histories were intended for use during the Federation’s 75th Anniversary programming in 1976, as well as for preservation in the community archives.  The Committee broadened its search for interview candidates in the late 1970s and 1980s and included younger people who were active in other Philadelphia-based Jewish community organizations.  In 1982, the Women’s Council merged with the Federation Allied Jewish Appeal Women’s Division to form the Women’s Leadership Board.  Oral history interviews continued to be conducted by members of the Women’s Leadership Board until the early 1990s, when the Women’s Leadership Board became part of the Women’s Division.  Interviews continued under the Women’s Division until the late 1990s. 
 
Description of Collection 
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, Women’s Division Oral Histories and Project Files contains interviews with one hundred and fifty members of the Philadelphia Jewish community.  Topics discussed in the oral history interviews include Philadelphia neighborhoods, Jewish identity, World War II, synagogues, professional life, and community organizations.  Audio formats of the interviews include audiocassette tapes, CD, and digital WAV files.  Most oral history interviews include transcripts or time stamp interview summaries.  This collection also includes administrative files created over the course of the project.   
 
Organization and Arrangement 
 
The collection is arranged into 2 series as follows:
 
Series 1: Oral Histories, 1972-1997
Series 2: Project Files, circa 1972-1999
 
Series 1: Oral Histories, 1972-1997, contains oral history interviews with members of the Philadelphia Jewish community.  Interviewees answered questions about the discrimination they faced growing up and the role of Judaism in their own lives, and shared ideas about the future of the Jewish community in Philadelphia.  Many interviewees were active leaders of organizations such as the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, the Allied Jewish Appeal, and the United Jewish Appeal.  Other organizations and institutions commonly mentioned in these oral history interviews include Albert Einstein Medical Center, Association for Jewish New Americans, Downtown Children’s Center, Germantown Jewish Centre, Gratz College, Hadassah,  Moss Rehabilitation Hospital, Neighborhood Centre, Temple University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia Geriatric Center, now the Abramson Center for Jewish Life.  Most interviewees were congregants of Adath Israel, Adath Jehurun, or Har Zion Temple.  Interviews are arranged alphabetically by interviewee’s last name.        
 
Many of the interviews include either a full transcript or a time stamp interview summary.  Some transcripts may differ from the original audio recording due to inconsistencies in recording quality.  The interviews were originally recorded on audiocassette tapes and some have been digitized and transferred to CD for access.  This series also includes floppy disks that contain digital files of transcripts.  Some transcripts on the disks might be similar or identical to paper material in this collection. 
 
Series 2: Project Files, circa 1972-1999, contains the administrative files for the oral history project, created by the Women’s Council, the Women’s Leadership Board, and the Women’s Division.  Materials include correspondence, meeting minutes, interview forms, interviewee lists, procedures, and project reports.  Material is arranged alphabetically according to type of material, and then chronologically.
