About Us

The New Mexico Jewish Historical Society (NMJHS) is a non profit organization devoted to promoting scholarship and awareness of the role of Jewish settlers to New Mexico, throughout the history of this land. The society works closely with the New Mexico Historical Society (NMHS) and the State’s Museums and Archives. We developed photo panel displays which have been shown in Museums and other public venues, a school curriculum now in use in elementary and middle schools, and we work closely with historians, as well as individuals researching their family history. We sponsor programs across the state, and an annual conference.


The New Mexico Jewish Historical Society is a non-profit organization.

The New Mexico Jewish Historical Society is a secular organization that promotes greater knowledge and understanding of New Mexico’s diverse Jewish experiences within a broad cultural context.


The NMJHS’s Vision is to become a more diverse and visible statewide organization to facilitate an increasingly better understanding and appreciation of New Mexico Jewish history.
