Abstract: Dr. Rebecca Jefferson is the Curator of the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica at the University of Florida. She is interviewed here by Richard Peritz, for the Shalom Show on ABC TV-25 in Palm Beach Florida and on cable networks nationwide ... Thanks to the Library's reputation for excellence and its many exciting outreach initiatives, it was awarded a second prestigious National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Challenge Grant. The grant will enable the library to build a new endowment fund to support the acquisition and digitization of hidden and endangered Jewish materials from Florida, Latin America, and the Caribbean and thus support vital research in this area.
