Dedicated to the preservation of the Jewish history of Central New Jersey

The JHSCJ was organized on November 7, 1977, and now serves Middlesex, Union, Somerset, Mercer, Warren, and Hunterton Counties in New Jersey. Our society is supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Middlesex County, and is an affiliate of the American Jewish Historical Society. We urge you to BECOME A MEMBER.

About Our Society

The mission of the Jewish Historical Society of Central Jersey is to promote, research, and publish all facets of Central New Jersey's Jewish experience. We maintain an Archival Collection which is available to researchers. We promote educational programs and exhibits for both the Jewish and general communities. We hope to foster pride in our heritage to all our Jewish constituents, whether they are old-time residents or recent arrivals.

Come pay us a visit! Please call (732) 249-4894 to arrange a time.


The JHSCJ is a Partner in the Create a Jewish Legacy initiative sponsored by the Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey. Click this LINK for more details.
