The Archive was founded during the 1950's, answering the need to preserve the documents and papers that accompanied the development of the Israeli educational system early in the 20th century, when the first national-secular schools were established.
At the same time the remaining materials of the once-glorious educational systems of the destructed Jewish communities
in Europe were collected and deposited at the archive.
The archive preserves all materials written and created within the scope of the educators work - in classrooms, during teachers meetings, in professional organizations and working in the community.
These rich resources assist and benefit educational researchers, students and teachers in training.
The Archive's operating goal is to form bonds with educators and educational institutes in Israel and the diaspora.
The Archive of Jewish Education is a public archive, administered under the supervision of the Israel State Archives.
