Friends of the Leonard N. Simons Jewish Community Archives

For 25 years, the Leonard N. Simons Jewish Community Archives has collected, preserved, and shared the records of Detroit’s Jewish community. Our vast collection includes more than 2 million documents, 25,000 photographs, and 100 oral history interviews.

Have you ever wondered what an archivist does? How an archive collects and organizes thousands of feet of historical documents? Have you ever wanted a peak at collections that are rarely seen by the public? 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.

In addition, your gift will help us continue to collect and preserve the history of Jewish Detroit.

Annual membership is $36.
