The IJHS is still inventorying and digitizing its expansive artifact collection and archives. Thank you for you patience; this is an ongoing project and new records will be uploaded periodically.

This project was made possible by generous grants from the Beverly Blank Perry Foundation and the State Historical Society of Iowa's Historical Resource Development Program.

Your annual membership to the Iowa Jewish Historical Society will help preserve the history and irreplaceable treasures of the Jewish people of Iowa!

As we celebrate nearly 200 years of Jewish life in Iowa, your support of the Iowa Jewish Historical Society can make a very real difference. Without your help and financial support, the stories of Jewish life in Iowa and the documents and artifacts that we preserve could be lost to future generations. Your tax-deductible membership enables us to continue this important work. Members are crucial to the Iowa Jewish Historical Society’s success.
