Bring JHC to Your Community!

The Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center offers a variety of programs featuring stories and themes from our archival collections. In addition to programs scheduled at our Boston location, JHC staff members are available to talk to your synagogue, community center, school, or organization, for in-person or virtual presentations. Please contact us for more information!

Examples of presentations we offer include: 

  • “Jewish Boston Through the Archives” provides a historical tour of the Boston Jewish community as seen through the lens of the JHC’s archival collections. 
  • “Preserving your Family History” focuses on family papers, photographs, and born-digital media.
  • “All our Stories: Tales from the Case Files of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (Boston)” highlights some of the more detailed and profound case files that remind us of our families’ shared experiences of coming to America. 
  • “Jewish Neighborhood Voices” transports you to immigrant neighborhoods in Greater Boston during the first half of the 20th century, through the eyes and ears of first- and second-generation Jewish Americans in our Jewish Neighborhood Voices exhibit.

The JHC also offers programs for schools on connecting individual family history to Jewish history, preserving family history through oral history and objects, and photograph and primary-source literacy. Consider bringing the JHC to visit your school or school-aged group (including elementary, middle, secondary, and college/university). 

We’re happy to tailor a program to your needs. For more information, please contact us at or 617-226-1288.
