Our Mission

The Jewish Historical Society of Michigan educates, celebrates and promotes awareness of the contributions of the Jews of Michigan to our state, our nation and the world. Throughout the year, we present docent-led tours of historic Jewish Detroit and Southeast Michigan and host interesting lectures, book discussions and film viewings. We publish Michigan Jewish History, an annual journal, and maintain the Jewish Yearbook Collection, the largest collection of yearbooks from Detroit-area high schools.
