Indexes for Western States Jewish History Journals
Western States Jewish History – Parent of the Jewish Museum of the American West – has published four journals a year for 47 years.
Much of the material in the Jewish Museum of the American West comes from our vast library of articles researched over almost five decades.
While our Museum Exhibits are limited in scope, researchers, family members and genealogists can have access to the complete articles by ordering back issues of Western States Jewish History.
Each issue costs $25 – which includes everything – and is used to fund our Museum.
You may call in your order to our office at (818) 225-9631 so that we can talk to you and verify that what you want is in that specific Volume and Issue.
Otherwise, send request to: Western States Jewish History, 22711 Cass Avenue, Woodland Hills, CA 91364. Make check to “WSJH” for $25 for each item ordered.
Send the name of each article, Volume # and Issue # (Shown in the Index as 34/2 = Vol 34, Issue 2) Naming the article is to avoid mistakes.
We also need your name and complete mailing address, ZIP and e-mail.
Libraries requiring a full set or a large number of back issues may contact us for special pricing. Call: 818-225-9631

47 Year Index
Volumes 1 through 47
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.
