Since 1977, the Southern Jewish Historical Society has worked to foster scholarship about the experience of southern Jews. With an annual conference, academic journal, and active grant and award programs, the society has helped to move southern Jewish history from the margins of the American Jewish narrative into the mainstream. The SJHS has been in the forefront of the study of the Jewish South for 35 years.
On our website, you can access a detailed bibliography of published work on southern Jewish history as well as information about archival resources across the region. You can also read through the first three volumes of our outstanding journal Southern Jewish History, and purchase more recent volumes and individual articles.
The Southern Jewish Historical Society welcomes your membership. The SJHS includes members from all regions and religions, academic scholars and lay people alike. To become a member of our community, click here.
