The University of Colorado Boulder’s Program in Jewish Studies and the University Libraries' Special Collections, Archives, and Preservation Department invites applications for the 2020 James & Diane Shneer Fellowship in Post-Holocaust American Judaism.

The fellow will have the opportunity to conduct research and take advantage of the unique resources in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections. The Post-Holocaust American Judaism (PHAJ) Collections provide access to materials examining Judaism and the Jewish experience as a religious re-engagement, social movement, and philosophy of spiritual transformation in America from the late 1940s to the present. 

Fellows may conduct research during the 2020-2021 academic year in any of the collections available in the Post-Holocaust American Judaism Collections. However, preference will be given to candidates whose research project explores collections related to the Jewish Renewal movement in America.

Learn more about the PHAJ Collections:

Fellows will receive $1,500.00 to support their travel and research in the archives. The submission deadline is April 13, 2020.

We will work with the fellow to schedule their visit to the University of Colorado Boulder during the 2020-2021 academic year to conduct research in the PHAJ Collections.
