Download pdf
Abstract/Description: The Shalom Spiegel collection (1899-1984) consists of correspondence, handwritten notes, institutional records, copies of lectures, typescripts with notes, manuscripts, and ephemera. The collection is divided into six series: Correspondence, Genizah, Writings, Foundation Material, Jewish Theological Seminary Material, and Personal Material. Highlights of the collection include professional correspondence with important scholars and leaders such as Alexander Marx, Stephen S. Wise, Israel Davidson, Gershom Scholem, Alexander Scheiber, E. E. Urbach, and Menahem Zulay; notes on Medieval Hebrew literature and liturgy; documentation of Spiegel's involvement with the Kohut, Matz and Mekize Nirdamim Foundations; materials related to Spiegel's teaching career at the Jewish Institute of Religion and the Jewish Theological Seminary of America; and personal correspondence with Presidents Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Although Spiegel published very little in his lifetime, the Writings series, consisting mostly of notes and other unpubished materials, sheds light on his interest and knowledge in a wide range of biblical and poetical topics.
