Encyclopedia of Southern Jewish Communities
The ISJL Encyclopedia of Southern Jewish Communities is designed to present a history of every congregation and significant Jewish community in the South. The Encyclopedia is designed to be a continual work-in-progress. If you have additional information about any of the communities or congregations, please contact us! If you would like to help support our research of these community histories, you may donate here.
What's New in History?
This spring, we are completing an entry-by-entry update of the Encyclopedia of Southern Jewish Communities. This edit is done with ease-of-reading in mind, so look for a new format, unified structure of entries, some updated information and accessible insights in each entry! If you have suggestions for edits or additional information, please email us and we'll get the requests in the queue for vetting and incorporation.
