The online Jewish Museum of the American West explores the Jewish experience in American West from the 1840s to the early 1900s. Most of the exhibits are drawn from fifty years of research published by the Western States Jewish History Association, which founded the museum in 2013. Discover what happened when a historically persecuted group was let loose in a vast new area, where virtually no one cared about their religion, and where they were free to explore seemingly endless avenues to make a living and raise their families.
Jonathan L. Friedmann, Ph.D., is Director of the Jewish Museum of the American West and President of the Western States Jewish History Association. He is also Associate Dean of the Master of Jewish Studies Program and Professor of Jewish Music History at the Academy for Jewish Religion. Jonathan is the author or editor of twenty-five books, including Jewish Los Angeles and Jewish Gold Country.
