Abram L. Sachar was a pioneer and founder of the Hillel movement on American college campuses. He first became involved with the organization during his teaching career at the University of Illinois. Sachar served as Director of the Illinois sector from 1929 to 1933, and would go on to serve as National Director from 1933 to 1947. During his tenure, Hillel grew from nine to nearly 200 campus chapters throughout North America. Upon retiring as National Director in 1947, Sachar was named the Chairman of the National Hillel Commission. In this capacity, and later as Honorary Chairman, he continued to be active in support, activities, and fundraising for Hillel.

Sachar also served as President of the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization (BBYO) from 1945 to 1948. Founded in 1924, the BBYO is the largest and oldest international Jewish youth organization in the world. It is composed of the Aleph Ztadik Aleph for boys (AZA), and the B'nai B'rith Girls (BBG). The BBYO's mission is to offer social, educational, and leadership opportunities to Jewish teens from seventh through twelfth grade. Each chapter is required to offer programs in the areas of community service, social action, Jewish heritage and culture, athletics, and socialization. These programs are planned and implemented by the organization's youth members.

Materials include correspondence, memos, meeting minutes for the Hillel and BBYO executive committees, newspaper articles, lecture notes, drafts, and programs publications, and financial reports, specifically audits and budgets at the national, regional, and university level of Hillel. In addition, the Hillel-specific material includes correspondence related to Roosevelt House at Hunter College, the Foreign Students Program for refugee placement at American universities during World War II, and publications and publicity materials produced by or pertaining to Hillel.

Some materials are related to Sachar's lectures on Jewish and historical topics, which are not Hillel-specific. The majority of the materials were created by Abe Sachar, members of the executive committee of Hillel, and district and university Hillel workers.
