Founded in 1972 by Joseph Levine in Fort Wayne, the Indiana Jewish Historical Society is now headquartered in Indianapolis. Our archival holdings, which represent the entire state of Indiana, are housed in state-of-the-art facilities at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis. This collection contains thousands of items pertaining to the Jewish life across the state and the society continues to seek materials for the collection. The IJHS also encourages and promotes the preservation of Jewish historic buildings, monuments, markers, and cemeteries.
