The Robert and Molly Freedman Jewish Music Archive currently contains over 4000 recordings, primarily in Yiddish and Hebrew.
Molly built the collection in lifelong partnership with her beloved husband Bob. Together they traveled the world in search of treasured Jewish sound recordings. She also helped catalog the Jewish sheet music collection in the Archive. Molly would often join Bob for countless class and community presentations. Molly was a bright light and joyful presence who brought warmth and kindness to all. We at the Libraries are grief-stricken by her loss and extend our sympathies and condolences to Bob, the Freedman family, and to all Molly’s friends and admirers.
