Help our efforts to Preserve Indiana's Jewish Past and increase your impact! 

A Big update! So far, the Indiana Jewish Preservation Corps Internship has taken nearly 6000 scans of Historical Documents and Photographs related to Indiana's Jewish History and has collected almost 30 boxes of photos and documents for Historic Preservation. 

"Indiana Jewry has a story to tell, and the IJHS is beginning to tell it."

Dr. & Rabbi Jacob Rader Marcus of the American Jewish Archives wrote those words shortly after founding the IJHS in 1972.

Founded in Fort Wayne to collect, preserve, publish, and share the Jewish experience in Indiana, the Indiana Jewish Historical Society is headquartered in Indianapolis. Our archival holdings represent Indiana's entire state.

The Indiana Jewish Preservation Corps is funded by a grant and is part of the Indiana Historical Society's statewide Heritage Support grant program. The Lilly Endowment Inc provides the funding.
