Do you remember when Preston Street was a thriving Jewish enclave?
Do you remember the teen clubs Pi, Amitie, Modern Femmes and Resnick?
Do you remember Heritage Theatre?
How about Eliahu Academy? Amit Women? Jewish War Veterans?
If you remember any of these. If you enjoy reminiscing. If you enjoy looking at old photos and sharing comments with friends. And most of all, if you can lend a hand in identifying old photos that come from the last century, Community and The J need your help.
Best of all, you can participate from the comfort of your own home. Just log into Facebook and go to the Jewish Community of Louisville Archives page. A series of older photos have been posted and we ne0tbed your help in identifying who’s in them, when and where they were taken, and, if possible, the event at which they were taken.
More photos are added on a regular basis, so check back often.
This page was created by Kate Lafferty, a student at the University of Louisville, who was hired as a summer intern by Ranen Omer-Sherman, the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence Chair of Judaic Studies at the University of Louisville, to help Community begin to organize its photo archive.
