Biographical/Historical Note:  Janice Rothschild Blumberg is an author and speaker on American Jewish history, particularly Southern Jewish History. A native of Atlanta, who lived for many years in Washington D.C., she experienced Jewish history first-hand as the wife, now widow, of two outspoken Jewish leaders: Rabbi Jacob M. Rothschild of Atlanta (spiritual leader of The Temple when it was bombed in 1958 and friend of Martin Luther King, Jr.) and David M. Blumberg of Knoxville, Tennessee (civic leader and international president of B'nai B'rith 1971-1978). Janice has held leadership positions in numerous organizations, including the B'nai B'rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum, and served as president of the Southern Jewish Historical Society. She has lectured at universities, synagogues, museums and academic conferences across the country. In addition to authoring and contributing to several books, she has written articles for the "Encyclopedia Judaica," "Southern Jewish History," "The Atlanta Journal and Constitution Sunday Magazine," and many other publications. She is a regular columnist for "The Jewish Georgian."

Scope and Content:  Researchers studying the Janice Rothschild Blumberg Papers will gain insight into Jewish life in the American South. Papers are arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each file.
