Overview

The microfiche collection "Jewish Yearbooks and Calendars" includes three kadima titles, which collectively span the years 1909-1919:

  1. Evreiskii kalendar' "Kadima" na 5670-5673 (1909-1913) god (Vil’na, pod redaktsiei Gol'dberga).
  2. Evreiskii izhegodnik “Kadima” na 1918-1919 god (Pod redaktsiei Gol’dberga. Izdatel’stvo Kadima. Petersburg, 1918).
  3. Evreiskii ezhegodnik na 5662-5666 (1901-1906); 5668-5669 (1907-1909) Spravochnyi I literaturnyi al’manakh s illiustratsiiami. (Iszaniie Iosifa Lur’e. Peterburg).

Kadima are religious calendars of Jewish holidays and sacred days. The three kadima in this collection also offer a glimpse into the international context of Jews living in Vil’nus and St. Petersburg, as they include immigration statistics, listings of Jewish serials all over the world (by country), as well as listings of Jewish institutions both in Russia and abroad. Also represented in the kadima are biographies, Jewish songs, and advertisements.

The title Evreiskii ezhegodnik na 5662-5666 (1901-1906); 5668-5669 (1907-1909) Spravochnyi I literaturnyi al’manakh s illiustratsiiami is a reference book for the Jewish household. Along with the religious calendar, there are also laws relating to the Jews in Russia and death notices.  A good part of the yearbook was dedicated to publications of Jewish literary classics.
