Thank you for your support to JHSM’s Michigan Women Who Made a Difference project and archive.
Our vision, to collect and share the myriad stories and biographies of Michigan’s Jewish women who helped to build and shape our communities, can only be achieved with your support.
This website, free and open to the public, not only preserves these stories but makes them available to researchers, students, activists, genealogists, and moms and dads for generations to come. JHSM is the only Jewish organization in Michigan dedicated to the collection and preservation of these priceless stories.
The collection grows every day. Already, we have gathered some 200 stories of Jewish women whose legacies have contributed to this great state.
