Jewish Historical Society

of Southern California


organizers of the


Breed Street Shul Project, Inc.







         The Jewish Historical Society uses the many generous contributions received to support the numerous community projects and goals to preserve and promote the Jewish experience in Southern California.

         A project example would be the newly designed Jerry Freedman Habush Tour Guide Training Program that has been established honoring the many years of dedicated service Jerry has given to the Jewish Historical Society. This project hopes to produce a greater number of professional tour guides to enable us to broaden our tourist population and sponsor more public and chartered tours.

         Another example would be the Breed Street Shul Project (please see link above). This project is the Jewish Historical Society’s grandest endeavor at present, which represents the determination and dedication to preserve historic landmarks and neighborhoods. The revitalization of the multi-ethnic cultural center in the once predominately Jewish Boyle Heights Synagogue, a neighborhood which today is primarily Hispanic and Latino, give witness to how a community of diverse cultural differences are able to work together for common goals and successfully achieve a healthier and safer community for all.
