What is it?

The Washington Jewish Memory Archive is the WSJHS's new digital archive, a repository of our state's Jewish history from first immigrants to the present day. Thanks to generous state funding, we have been working to build this archive from the ground up.

How can I participate?

When we open appointments, you will have the opportunity to bring your artifacts into the office to get digitally preserved by our new archival-grade scanner—currently the only one of its kind in the entire Pacific Northwest!

Check back here or on our social media pages for updates. Please do not hesitate to contact us at or 206-774-2277 with any questions.
