Halina Goldberg is professor of music in musicology at the Jacobs School of Music and affiliate faculty of the Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program as well as the Interim Director of the Russian and East European Institute. She is also the Project Director for the Digital Scholarly Commons dedicated to the study of Jewish Life in Pre-World War II Łódź.
Professor Goldberg also has a personal investment in the project beyond her scholarly commitments. The Digital Scholarly Commons features a microhistory entitled: "In Mrs. Goldberg's Kitchen", which allows users to walk through Mrs. Goldberg's kitchen as it would have looked in pre-war Łódź.
The exhibit focuses on the working-class Jews of Bałuty during the period between the two world wars: it seeks to portray the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but also to present the astounding changes that took place at the threshold of modernity. The younger generation, which benefited from reforms undertaken during the brief flowering of independent Poland, was quickly adapting to new trends and mores. Interwar Bałuty was a world at the crossroads of tradition and modernity; yidishkayt and acculturation; Judaism, Marxism, and Zionism. (Goldberg)
