Welcome

Students in JST/HIST115, The American Jewish Experience, at Penn State University have the opportunity to take an additional one credit embedded course where they conduct hands-on historical research into Pennsylvania Jewish history. During spring break the students fan out around the state to visit historical sites, archives, and people with information about Pennsylvania’s Jewish past. They take photographs, collect documents, conduct interviews, and write about their findings. We invite you to use this site to access their discoveries and discussions.
