Judaica items, numbering. 80,000 in all,
can be found in multiple libraries on
campus. Hatcher's Special Collections
unit, which houses some of these items,
focuses on humanities and social - sci-
ence materials dating back to the
Middle Ages.
"I think [the Levin collection] is a
significant addition to our collections
because it compliments our strong
holdings in Judaica," said Kathleen
Dow, head of manuscript and archival
processing and cataloguing for the
Special Collections unit.
"Having seen all different types of
collections, I think this one is par. ticu-
larly rich because it's the personal
papers, the personal writings of this sig-
nificant figure," she said. "You don't
often get that because people throw
their papers away."
The collection is also noteworthy
-because it tells the story of a certain
period of Detroit history in general,
specifically Detroit Jewish history,
through the everyday life of a leading
rabbinic figure in the early 20th centu-
ry, Gertel said.
Rabbi Lev"in was one of the earliest
Zionist leaders in Michigan and
Hamizrahi meeting minutes are includ-
ed in the manuscript materials, Gertel
said. "He was very well-rounded; he
wasn't just a spiritual leader, he was also
a political leader and an inventor."
