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.
