Scope Note

This collection consists of lithographs, book leafs, newspaper prints, reproductions and ritual objects documenting and illustrating various aspects of the Jewish religious year (e.g. Rosh Hashanna, Yom Kippur, Sukkot); synagogue inaugurations and monuments and aspects of Jewish daily life and ceremonies in Europe and North America from the 18th to early 20th centuries.

Complimenting the visual representations of Jewish customs and ceremonies are works that portray anti-Semitism and the Image/Representation of the Jew in the popular media of the time. Moreover, the works in this collection have been created by non-Jewish and Jewish artists, caricaturists and illustrators leaving a broad swath of representations and perspectives on Jewish life and custom.

The contents have been collected over the course of 30 years by Harry Sondheim, a University of Chicago alumnus (A.B. 1954; J.D. 1957). Collected by University of Chicago alumnus Harry Sondheim (A.B. 1954; J.D. 1957.) When possible, this inventory is cross referenced to Mr. Sondheim’s own inventory of his collection.

Late 15th Century to Early 20th Century; the majority of this collection falls between the 18th and 19th Centuries.

This inventory incorporates accessions 2011-239, 2012-116, and 2013-372.
