The Journal

Michigan Jewish History…

Glorious reading for those who love history; an invaluable tool for researchers

Michigan Jewish History is a valuable resource enjoyed by readers and used by researchers worldwide. It is the longest continuously published journal of local Jewish history in the U.S.  The journal creates a permanent record by documenting the achievements and stories of Michigan’s Jewish communities, organizations, families and individuals.  Published annually, it covers a diverse range of topics ranging from Michigan’s earliest Jewish pioneers to the contributions of Michigan Jewish leadership on behalf of Israel to current activities of communities around the state. Michigan Jewish History is distributed exclusively to members of the JHSM and to libraries and universities.
