Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston offers monthly programs, special interest groups, individual help with research and a comprehensive beginner’s course. We have an extensive collection of research materials and publish an award-winning journal, Mass-Pocha.

In the words of Rabbi Avraham Joshua Heschel, “A Jew is asked to take a leap of action, rather than a leap of faith.”

The Board of Directors of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Boston has voted unanimously to make a donation to the CJP Ukraine Emergency Fund to support the humanitarian efforts to aid Jewish Ukrainians.
