Trenton Jewish Historical Society
The Trenton Jewish Community is a microcosm of the initial immigration of Sephardic German Jews. Then the tides of immigration of Russian Jews escaping oppressive religious persecution; finally, those Displaced Persons after World War 2; finally those Russian Jews freed in the 1970’s – 1990’s.
The Society records these phenomena so that our young will know their roots and our adult will not for forget theirs.
