The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research was founded in Vilna, Poland, in 1925, and relocated to New York City in 1940 with the mission to study the history of Jewish life in Eastern Europe in all its aspects: language, history, religion, folkways and material culture. Today YIVO’s Archive and Library make up one of the largest collections of materials on this subject in the world.
