The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) is a unit of FAU Libraries Special Collections department. We are located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes This music expresses an overall emotion covering everything the Jews have built as a people, an emotion using every shade and meaning of love - love of family, love of one's people, and a belief in an ultimate destiny. Songs of love, of parting, of bereavement are more intense and more sincere for all that unique centuries-old background. Here is a rich musical experience, which we accept gratefully as it comes to us in the art of Sidor Belarsky. Understanding, sympathy and musical knowledge are all here.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
