The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford collects, preserves and shares the history of the Jewish community of the region by telling the stories of Jewish life, culture, and contributions to our part of Connecticut.  We are committed to reaching out to different audiences through exhibitions, publications, educational and community outreach programs.

Established in 1971, the Society is a non-profit membership organization, and a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford.

Programs provided by Jewish Historical Society are funded, in part, by dollars raised through Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford’s Annual Campaign. As a proud Federation partner, we provide services that enhance Jewish education and heritage, social commitment, and engagement and outreach both locally and globally.
