The scope of the archive is vast, holding archives of hundreds of Jewish communities, as well as of local, national and international Jewish organizations and the private collections of many outstanding Jewish personalities. It is now under the auspices of the National Library of Israel and is in the process of being catalogued along the guidelines of the Archive Network of Israel.
