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 and it will formally launch on June 15th at our annual showcase fundraising event!


If you, your family, or organization have any artifacts that help tell the stories of Jewish Washington, we encourage you to consider bringing them to our office so that we may digitally preserve them with our archival-grade scanner—currently the only one of its kind in the entire Pacific Northwest!


While we prepare to open scanning appointments, there are two Open House events coming up where we will give demos to show you the amazing preservation power of this machine! You may get selected to have one photo or document scanned. Register today!


Scanning appointments will open soon. Please do not hesitate to contact us at or 206-774-2277 with any questions.
