A New Online Presence for the Leo Baeck Institute(s)

LBI FacebookSince 2010, LBI staff in New York have engaged with donors, scholars, genealogists, and others on the Institute’s Facebook page. In between two and six posts per day, archivists and librarians share unique items from our collections, news articles that touch on German-Jewish history, and updates about our programs and fellowships. A very active community of over 3,000 people engage with LBI on the social network, commenting on and sharing posts, posting research inquiries, and on occasion even helping to identify mysterious items in the collections. In June, LBI will launch a new Facebook presence that better represents the overlapping missions of the Leo Baeck Institutes in New York, London, and Jerusalem, as well as LBI – New York’s new office in Berlin. Two thirds of LBI – New York’s current followers live outside the United States, with German-speaking countries representing by far the largest segment within that group. Accordingly, the language of this new forum will be German. The content there will continue to focus on the collections of Leo Baeck Institute that are held in New York, but it will also include news from the Leo Baeck Institutes in London and Jerusalem, LBI New York’s Berlin Office, and the LBI’s academic working group in Germany.
