Who We Are & What We Do

The Jewish Heritage Foundation of North Carolina is the only statewide independent organization dedicated to collect, preserve and present the history of the Jewish people of our State. To serve our mission we honor our history, celebrate our culture, and connect our communities.

We seek to collect artifacts that recount the story of the Jewish people in North Carolina, present programs that educate and showcase the richness of Jewish life, and serve as a resource to connect and enhance our diverse Jewish communities as well as promote a familiarity with the culture and lifestyle of Jews to the general public.


We have mounted two museum exhibits: ‘Migrations: Jewish Settlers of Eastern North Carolina’ and our current exhibit, ‘Down Home: Jewish Life in North Carolina’, which is a multi-media project comprised of a traveling museum exhibit, acclaimed DVD, book and curriculum guide.
