Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

LAMOTH dedicates itself as a primary source institution, one that commemorates those who perished and those who survived by housing the precious artifacts that miraculously weathered the Holocaust era. LAMOTH provides free Holocaust education to the public, particularly students from under-funded schools and underserved communities. We guarantee dialogue with an actual Survivor, a living embodiment of history.

 

The 1939 Society

The 1939 Society is a tax-exempt, charitable and fraternal organization of Holocaust survivors, their families and friends. It is dedicated to Holocaust education, documentation, justice and the memory of the six million Jews who perished, the millions of other victims who lost their lives, and the righteous persons who stood up for human rights - so that it will never happen again! The Club develops its own programs and collaborates with, and donates to, other organizations to further these goals.

 

Child Survivors of the Holocaust, Los Angeles

Child Survivors in Los Angeles were brought together in 1983, and since then our group has grown to nearly 500 members in California. We gather together to provide a supportive environment for child survivors by learning from each other’s problems and solutions. We celebrate Passover and Chanukah together and have several varied activities, including our very popular Summer Bash and Annual Retreat for the past 25 years. We are affiliated with the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust, representing nearly twenty thousand child survivors around the world.

Western Jewish Studies Association

Its main purpose is to organize and host a Jewish Studies Conference every Spring at alternating sites in the western United States and Canada to serve as a forum for Jewish Studies scholars in this region to present their research, discuss pedagogical issues, network with colleagues in their disciplines, and share information about the funding and organization of Jewish Studies programs.

 

Jewish American Holocaust Literature Symposium

Annual conference in South Beach, FL. The JAHLIT symposium directors welcome an international body of scholars of Jewish American and Holocaust literature regardless of religious affiliation, denomination, or area of scholarly expertise.

 

American Jewish Committee

AJC, established in 1906 by a small group of American Jews deeply concerned about pogroms aimed at Russian Jews, determined that the best way to protect Jewish populations in danger would be to work towards a world in which all peoples were accorded respect and dignity. Over 100 years later, AJC's unparalleled global diplomacy and legislative advocacy leverage our unique relationships with powerful leaders who influence policy. AJC is best positioned to respond to global challenges confronting the well-being of the Jewish people and threatening democratic values worldwide.
