The mission of the Leonard N. Simons Jewish Community Archives is to collect, preserve and make available for research the records of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, United Jewish Foundation, Federation’s member agencies and local community organizations.
By becoming a “Friend,” you will receive membership benefits such as behind-the-scenes tours of archival repositories and museum, invitations to programs, and lectures, and biannual newsletters.Learn More
