The Mission of the Nebraska Jewish Historical Society is to preserve the histories of the Jewish families who settled in Nebraska and Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The NJHS will promote the acquisition, cataloging and use of the collected materials which depict this history by: participating in conferences; providing community programs and exhibits in varied media formats; issuing publications to members and professionals; fostering research; and promoting museum projects and related educational and cultural activities.

The Nebraska Jewish Historical Society was founded in 1982 by Mary Arbitman Fellman and Oliver Pollak to collect, publish and display materials which pertain to the family, business and social histories of the Jewish Community of Nebraska and Council Bluffs. The NJHS is a non-profit (501(c)(3) organization.
