This page features a collection of as many documents as we can find relating to the Bais Yaakov movement. Documents will be added as we continue to search archives and databases, and as our readers provide us with documents in personal collections. 

Access individual copies of the Bais Yaakov Journal, a usually-monthly publication that appeared from 1923 to 1939, here.

We hope to begin transcribing and translating documents as well. To maximize the educational value of the documents, our blog will showcase selected documents, examining the contents and analyzing the information we can glean from each one.

The items below come from various archives who have generously allowed us to host them on our site.
Please do not reuse these documents without permission of the respective archives.

If you have any documents that you think would be useful for this project, please contact us.
