Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive


The Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive was founded in the late 1960s by Prof. Moshe Davis and other historians at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The first director was the late Dr. Geoffrey Wigoder and the Archive originally bore the name of its first donor, Iranian businessman Abraham F. Rad, who gave his support for a number of years. In 1987 a generous donation was received from Steven Spielberg and the Archive was named after the American filmmaker, whose continuing interest in our activities is a source of pride.
