Home to Natchez's Historic Jewish Congregation
With funding from a Community Heritage Preservation Grant from the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH), we have just completed construction of a wheelchair access ramp. This first phase of construction marks the beginning of a multimillion-dollar restoration and renovation project that will enhance accessibility, restore the historic structure, and preserve the building in perpetuity. Once the restoration is complete, the building will be consistently open as an event space, community arts hub, and museum telling the story of Jewish life in Natchez.
