The Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation (JASHP) is an American non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer historical society. The society locates sites of American and Jewish historical interest and importance. It works with local community organizations, synagogues, churches, historical societies, governments and individuals, to erect interpretive historical markers that help illuminate the American-Jewish experience and reflect on the commonality of being American.
JASHP was founded in 1999 after the discovery by the founder, Jerry Klinger, of the first permanent Jewish house of worship in the territory of New Mexico (Temple Montefiore, Las Vegas, N.M.). JASHP has completed projects in 28 states and in five countries. Projects are constantly being developed and proposals are welcomed. Over 6,000,000 people a year benefit from JASHP projects. The Society is a small organization. Each program is individualized with organizational participation from as few as two or three people to as many as 300. Considering JASHP's size, its impact has been disproportionally large.
JASHP is the recipient of Hadassah's Myrtle Wreath Award, which is "given to individuals and non-profit organizations which have made significant humanitarian contributions to our community."
