Collecting These Times is an interactive website and digital repository for collections that document the myriad, diverse ways in which American Jewish individuals and communities are experiencing, responding, and adapting to the Covid-19 pandemic. Collecting These Times connects American Jews to Jewish institutions and other collecting projects which can gather and preserve their experiences of the pandemic. Individuals can find relevant collecting projects through the portal and easily contribute materials such as images, videos, audio recordings, documents, and oral histories to collecting institutions in different parts of the U.S.
Researchers and community members can view materials to better understand how American Jews are experiencing baz’man hazeh, these times. Collecting These Times is a project of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and the Council of American Jewish Museums.
