Jewish Heritage Collection
South Carolina Jews Tell Their Stories

Selections from oral histories, memoirs, and manuscripts from the Collection provide glimpses into the lives of Jewish South Carolinians. To date, we have recorded over 300 interviews. The narratives that follow represent a fraction of what we have on tape. Chosen for their literary and historical merit, the vignettes are grouped thematically and (loosely) chronologically.

Use the glossary to help you with unfamiliar words and phrases.
