We are currently closed to visitors to renovate, improve, and expand our facility. Our staff is working remotely and will continue to serve our members to the best of our abilities. 

Improvements to our current headquarters will allow us to better serve our members and the public. We are very excited about these upcoming changes and look forward to opening our new and renovated facilities and serving you in person in Autumn 2024!  

Currently, all physical archival materials are stored at our secure off-site facility for safety during renovations and may not be available for reference at this time. However, many of the Jewish Heritage Center’s collections are digitized, searchable, and available for access through our Digital Library & Archives.

Please email for more information or to schedule a virtual reference consultation.
