Preserving Las Vegas

The Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project is part of UNLV Special Collections' broader mission to collect, preserve, and make available the history of Southern Nevada.

UNLV University Libraries | Special Collections | Mission and Purpose:

The history of Southern Nevada is unique and can be viewed through many different lenses, including the lens of the Jewish community. In a culture that focuses on what's new, it is important to preserve records that may be otherwise destroyed.
