Welcome

Welcome to The Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative (BJHI).

We will maintain this interactive website, organize public programs and events, maintain records and archives both online and in their original state, create oral and video histories which will be accessible online, and make a range of resources available to the public. It’s a community project and we need your help to do it right!
Share your stories, pictures, and memories of Jewish Life in Brooklyn here.
