The JHFNC is contributing its resources to an on-line Religion in North Carolina Digital Collection. This project is a collaboration of Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest University. RNCDC is collecting, preserving, and making accessible primary materials on all religious bodies in the state. Once digitized, anyone, anywhere will be able to read these documents on line.

The JHFNC has loaned the Religion in North Carolina project its extensive collection of synagogue dedication books and congregational histories compiled for Down Home: Jewish Life in North Carolina. They date from the 1883 “Programme” of Oheb Sholom in Goldsboro to the 2007 histories of Temples Emanuel in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

We welcome your congregation’s participation. All materials loaned will be digitized and returned to their owners. The program is headquartered at the Duke Divinity School Library under the direction of Shanee Murain, project coordinator. If copyrighted, permission is needed to digitize and display on the internet. Contact Leonard Rogoff at  For more information on this project, please visit:
