The Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative brings together information about institutions, Jewish historical societies, projects, groups, and individuals connected to the study of contemporary and historical Brooklyn Jewish communities. In this way, we hope to encourage links between individuals and organizations, as well as to facilitate exchanges. Send us your ideas for links and we will consider including them in our Resource list.
