Emmanuelle Moscovitz is a Phd candidate at Tel Aviv University in the Chaim Rosenberg School of Jewish Studies and Archeology. She received a BA in history at the University of Ottawa and an MA in Jewish studies from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Emmanuelle’s PhD dissertation research deals with the General Chaplaincy of the Jews of France and the efforts of its rabbis for the Jews detained in French internment camps. The study of an institution, established by the French state, whose rabbis were ultimately targeted with arrest and deportation and who joined various resistance movements, will shed new light on the relations between French Jewry, the Vichy government, and the French State. Emmanuelle’s recent publications include “L’Aumônerie Générale des israélite de France et la préservation des rites funéraires dans le sud de la France 1940-1944 » published in the Revue d’histoire de la Shoah, and "Caring for the elderly: the efforts of the chaplain rabbis on behalf of the elderly Jews in French Internment camps 1940-1944" published in Yad Vashem Studies.

Since 2013, Emmanuelle has been employed at Yad Vashem where she worked as a tour guide in the Historical Museum, and as a researcher in the International Research Institute for Holocaust Studies from 2013-2015. Since 2015, Emmanuelle has been employed in the Yad Vashem Archives.
