Rhode Island Jewish Historical Association
The oldest local ethnic historical society in Rhode Island.


We have been adding digital content to this site thanks to several different grants, and a continuing initiative to make our archival materials available to the public.

Please continue to check back every so often and look at the content we’ve added!

The most recent addition to the RIJHA’s website, are scans of our oldest documents from the late 18th century; King David’s Lodge treasury documents, that name well known Rhode Island Jews such as Moses Seixas, Moses Michael Hays, Isaac Isaacs, and many more. Check them out here!
