JHSM Heritage Council

The JHSM Heritage Council helps ensure the future of the Jewish Historical Society of Michigan through large gifts and bequests. With one gift, Heritage Council members become life members of JHSM and receive all of the benefits of our annual membership, plus special recognition and an invitation to our annual Heritage Council member event. Heritage Council member names are published twice annually: in Michigan Jewish History and in the Annual Meeting Program. All donations made by Heritage Council members are cumulative.
