Mapping Jewish LA: Jewish Histories in Multiethnic Boyle Heights
In the 1930s, Boyle Heights was the epicenter of a flourishing, mostly Yiddish-speaking, Jewish community that comprised over a third of L.A.'s Jewish population.

This vibrant Jewish community emerged in one of the most diverse areas in Los Angeles, called home by thousands of Mexican, Japanese, Armenian, Russian, and African American families—the neighborhood offering a window into the unique history of Jewish immigration, migration, and community diversity in the American West. In honor of Jewish American Heritage Month 2021, join us for a deep dive into the kaleidoscopic history of this multiethnic neighborhood with Dr. Caroline Luce, Associate Director of the UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies and Chief Curator of the Mapping Jewish Los Angeles Project.
