The Jewish Community Archives of Greater Kansas City (JCA), in partnership with the State Historical Society of Missouri (SHSMO), works to preserve the stories that compose our region's history. JCA fulfills its mission to preserve American Jewish history in Greater Kansas City and the Midwest by encouraging and supporting the collection of documents, photographs, and other memorabilia concerning Jewish life, history, and culture in the region. The collection provides researchers, teachers and students, and the general public an opportunity to engage with the diverse and dynamic stories that compose the area's rich Jewish history.
Members of the community have an important role to play in preserving Jewish history. Consider donating personal papers or collections of organizational and business records to the Jewish Community Archives by contacting us.
