COMMON INTEREST FROM BUTTE
Shalom to everyone.
I am writing to introduce an opportunity to contribute to the legacy of the Butte Montana Jewish community. Please note that I am writing to you as an individual rather than on behalf of the Congregation.
On May 10 and May 11, 2019 the Butte Silver Bow Public Archives, (www.buttearchives.org) (firstname.lastname@example.org) will host a workshop to begin to document the history and culture of the Jewish community in Butte.
The Archives has received a Common Heritage Grant from the National Endowment for Humanities, (NEH).
The Archives is interested in oral histories, manuscripts for digitalization, family trees and histories, artifacts to be loaned for exhibit and returned to owners, ephemera (stuff) relating to the Jewish community. They are interested to learn when how and why Jews came to Butte, where they came from, their means of travel to get here, how they made a living and raised their families. What part did our ancestors take in Butte’s history? Details about the Congregations and Temples are of interest.
The Archives is a professional organization that has the means to properly care for anything sent to them to help in the project.
If you know of anything that might help in this project, please let the archives know. The details to contact the Archives are below. Please check out their website. Thank you for your interest in this project.
