Welcome to the Submission Page of the Jewish Museum of the American West.

Now our visitors can help create exhibits for Western Jewish Pioneers, Western Jewish Organizations and Western Synagogues.

There is no charge to submit and have an exhibit site on The Jewish Museum of the American West.*

* This will remain our policy as long as donations allow us to pay our tech bills.


Submissions Criteria

Jewish Pioneers, Organizations, and Synagogues must be located West of the Mississippi River. (Wisconsin & Minnesota, Alaska & Hawaii are included), Canada includes: Bristish Columbia, Yukon Territory, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Mexico includes: Baja, Sonora, Chihuahua and Coahuila.


Jewish Pioneers must have reached the “active” part of their career in the West by the 1890s.  [Click here for Jewish Pioneers Subission Form.]

Jewish Community Organizations and Fraternal Organizations must have begun at that location before 1914. (100 years old) [Click here for Jewish Community Organization Submission Form]

Synagogues must have been founded before 1965. (50 years old) [Click here for synagogue Submission Form]


Along with submissions we will need:

Your Name, e-mail address, & Phone #

Special Note:  –To make matters even easier.

In testing our new Submission Forms we found that one should first look at the form to see what it wants.

Then do the collection of information on a separate page like a Word Document – until you have all or most of the questions answered.

Then send that Word Document to Curator@JMAW.

Use the submission form as a guide only. A word.doc is much easier.

We are always available for help.


We will send requirements for pictures when your submissions are accepted for an exhibit.

You will be listed as the Curator of each Exhibit that you help create.
