The Indiana Jewish Historical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization with a mission to collect, preserve, publish, and share the Jewish experience in Indiana.
The Indiana Jewish Historical Society continues to collect and preserve historical Jewish records, documents, photographs, and other historically essential material connected to Indiana’s Jewish past and to educate the public and the Jewish community on our Jewish past with over 200 years in the Hoosier state. We do this with Scan-A-thons, speakers events, our IN-Jewish History Podcast, and our yearly Publication.
The Board of Directors consists of members from around the state, serving two consecutive three-year terms (representing their communities). IJHS members vote to elect each Board member. The Board of Directors annually appoints our Executive Board, which consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Executive positions are limited to two 2-year consecutive terms. The IJHS employs an executive director.
