The Jewish experience in Arizona is a unique one. Many Jews arrived in Arizona in the 19th century and played vital roles in the development of Arizona's mining industry, agriculture, and commerce which helped to settle the American West. Since then the Jewish population has become integrated into virtually every aspect of Arizona life. The AZJHS is dedicated to preserving local Jewish history, promoting awareness of our state's diverse history, and making local history accessible to all. Visitors to our newly renovated home, now called the Cutler Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center, can experience firsthand a bit of local history when they tour our 90 year old landmark historic building. Come explore our museum gallery, stay for one of our many fun, culturally rich programs, share a photograph with our archive, join our monthly book discussion group, or celebrate a special occasion in our beautiful sanctuary.

Since this center has been brought back to the lives of the Phoenix Metro are Jewish community, it has been a great center for a terrific variety of exhibits, like the current one of the Jews of Shanghai. They have great programs constantly, like the movie series.

I recently visited the exhibit, "New Frontiers: Jewish Pioneers in the Arizona Territory" which is on display at the Cutler Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center. It was such a wonderful exhibit and the center itself is a beautiful, historic building. Would recommend to all!
