Jewish Federation of the Bluegrass Papers Now Available
UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center recently organized, inventoried, and made available the records of the Jewish Federation of the Bluegrass. This community and religious-based organization, whose previous iterations date back to the late 1800s, plays an important role in supporting the educational, charitable, social, and cultural activities of the Jewish community in central Kentucky.
