The Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives was founded in 1989 to collect, preserve, and make accessible the documentary history of Jews and Jewish communities of Western Pennsylvania. Eric Lidji, Director of the Archives, will offer an overview and highlight family pictures, papers, and artifacts donated by Temple Sinai member Barb Siegel. These items date back to her great-great grandparents, and Mr. Lidji has described the collection as “one of the most thorough and vital pieces the Archives has received.”
