Oral Interview Program is part of an ongoing project of the Jewish
Historical Society of Memphis &
the Midsouth (JHSMM) and the Temple Israel Archives.
It is carried out by volunteer members who collect interviews
with individuals in the Memphis Jewish community.
portion of the collection is comprised of interviews done by Selma
Lewis for her 1998 book, A Biblical People in the Bible Belt,
on the Jewish community of Memphis 1840s through 1960s. It also
contains interviews of individuals involved in the
community and/or who have significant knowledge of its past. Some of
the interviews have multiple dates which means the same names were
included in the second portion but not listed separately.
Additonal interviews will be added as they become available.
