COVID-19 Project

The novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and the global efforts underway to stop its spread have greatly impacted our daily life and experience. In an effort to document this significant and unique period for preservation in the Jewish Historical Society of Greater MetroWest’s Archives, we invite community members to record and share your experiences. 

We are asking the public to submit documents via Dropbox:

When possible, documents should be saved as PDF for text, WAV for videos, or TIF or JPG for photos. If you have physical items to donate to the collection, please contact or


  • To participate in this project, you may choose to maintain a journal or diary, record video or audio, submit banners, announcements, create a photographic series or other artistic work.  We are able to accept physical and digital materials.  
  • The final product will document actions, thoughts, feelings, and other experiences you have throughout this period.  
  • For assistance at any point in your project or questions, contact Jill Hershorin, Archivist at
