Western States Jewish History Journal

47 Year Index

Volumes 1 through 47

Volumes 48-50 to be added soon.

There are two different indexes, both starting with Volume 1, Number 1, October, 1968 and continue through Volume 47, Number 3/4, Spring/Summer 2014. They include 175+ separate issues, covering a great deal of Jewish history in the Western United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Pacific Rim.

Index #1 is based on the main person of the listed article.

Index #2 is based on the general location of the listed article and is used when a main person is not listed.

Index #3 is for special Double and Triple Length Special Issues – price is the same – $25.

Always check Index #1 first for Research Purposes.

In a few cases, articles are listed twice, in different issues, in a given index. Through the years, WSJH has reached back into its past to produce special issues. For example: Volume 27, #3, April 1995, was a special issue on California, Earthquakes and Jews. Many earlier articles were selected and updated, where appropriate, by Dr. Kramer.

Volume 28 Numbers 3 & 4 and Volume 29, Number 1 were special issues on the Sephardic Jews of the West. Many of the chapters of these three volumes also came from earlier articles in WSJH, and many were revised or up-dated by Dr. Kramer.
