 Welcome to home of the International Survey of Jewish Monuments Minimize
 Welcome to the website of the International Survey of Jewish Monuments (ISJM). 

The International Survey of Jewish Monuments (ISJM) is an independent, non-profit, membership based, educational organization dedicated to the documentation, study, care and conservation of historic Jewish sites throughout the world. 

A primary role of ISJM is to serve as a clearing-house of information about current projects and programs that effect Jewish monuments, especially through the posting of news, photos, reports, directories and other materials on this site.

Check the RSS News section  for links to articles from around the world, including updates on Jewish monuments.  The calendar is a good place to find upcoming events such as museum openings, art exhibitions, cultural festivals, conferences, and lectures.

 This website will collate information from around the world, and we invite ISJM members and users to contribute information. This website is a work-in-progress.  The final format of the site will respond to the needs of those who consult with it most.  Let us know the type of information that you need, and share the information and expertise that you have with others. Tell us how you use the information from ISJM - for teaching, research, travel or some other purpose.

Please email ISJM with any urgent inquiries, comments, or requests.
