These materials provide a snapshot of Jewish life in Jacksonville from the late 19th century to the end of the 20th century.

Assembled here is a collection of Benjamin Safer’s writings, including personal letters, notebooks (pinkasim) jottings and sermonettes. The sermonettes are particularly interesting due to the fact that Safer used the Hebrew alphabet to write down the English speeches that he delivered to the community. These notebooks and sermonettes not only provide a glimpse into the life of a Jewish immigrant in America, they are also linguistically fascinating and will facilitate further research into Jewish languages and language acquisition. Of additional interest to researchers of Yiddish will be Safer’s personal correspondence.
