Larg National Grant AdvanCes YIVO Tasks

(Continued from Page 1)
At an awards dinner of the
Jewish Institute of Religion-
Hebrew Union College, Dr.
Berman said the new grant
would enable YIVO's Max
Weinreich Center for Ad-
vanced Jewish Studies to re-
structure and extend its Yid-
dish and East European stud-
ies over a period of five
years."
He declared that the grant
would permit "unprecedented
expansion and strengthening
of Jewish studies on a highly
professional plane."
He reported that with the
help of an earlier humanities
endowment, 800,000 pages of
YIVO documents on the arri-
val, relocation and American-
ization of East European im-
migrants to the United States
since the 1860s had been mi-
crofilmed, and nine collec-

tions, totaling about 375,000
pages, had been catalogued.
He said the materials in the
YIVO archives, "a unique
natural resource," totaled
3,000,000 pages, "many in a
deteriorated condition."
A smaller YIVO project
supported by the council
dealt with the study and an-
alysis of East European folk-
songs.
Reporting that during 1970-
73 an estimated $16,000,000
was made in grants by the
council in the field of Jewish
studies, Dr. Berman said
"the most extraordinary pro-
ject" involved computer stor-
age for use in research of "a
great mass of material con-
tained in the Hebrew respon-
sa—the replies of scholars
and rabbis to problems of
human relationships over the
last 1,700 years."
He said these materials
were being assembled for
the first time for analysis
and scholarly research. The
humanities endowment i s
helping to support the project
through grants to Bar-Ilan
University in Israel, he said,
adding that Yale and other
American universities had
made arrangements with
Bar-Ilan to- cary out research
in the field.
He said also that the hu-
manities endowment was one
of several donors to the crea-
tion of the Great Dictionary
of the Yiddish Language, with
a planned 250,000 listings in
13 volumes. Three of these
have been published by schol-
ars at City College of New

made to the Leo Baeck Insti-
tute in New York to complete
its "remarkable library" of
700 different periodicals pub-
lished by or for Jews from

Another recent grant was
to the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, the
Conservative seminary, for a
pilot project to train librar-
ians in Judaica.
Dr. Berman said there
were some 50 other endow-
ment grants in the field of
Jewish studies and cited two
supported outside of New

One was a grant to the Yale

plete the translate of the

which the council had made
"small sustaining grants"
annually since 1968. The other.
is an archeological expedi-
