The Society's photograph collections include works from two local photographers as well as photo archives from local businesses and organizations. Highlights include:
Our collection of photojournalist Ida Jervis's work highlights Jewish community events between the mid-1960s and mid-1980s. These cover a wide range of subjects, including Soviet Jewry protests, victory celebrations following the Six-Day War, Israel’s 25th anniversary, Holocaust survivor events, and a variety of cultural events and performances on the National Mall and in local schools.
Photographer Lloyd Wolf donated prints and electronic files documenting various aspects of the Jewish community of Washington, D.C from 1993 to 2012, including religious life, musicians, and DCJCC's annual Christmas Day volunteer program.
