Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project


From the first settlements through today, Jewish families and individuals have been central to building Las Vegas. Entrepreneurs, risk-takers, pioneers, professionals, community leaders—the lives of Southern Nevada's Jewish people reveal multiple facets of our region's dynamic history. The UNLV University Libraries' Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project will ensure these diverse stories survive and enrich future generations.
