The Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation[1], JASHP, [2] is an American non-profit, 501c3, volunteer organization. The Historical Society locates sites of American Jewish historical interest and importance. They work with local community organizations, synagogues, churches, historical societies, governments and individuals, to erect interpretive historical markers that help illuminate the American Jewish experience and reflect on the commonality of being Americans.

JASHP was founded in 1999 after the discovery of the first permanent Jewish house of worship in the Territory of New Mexico: Temple Montefiore - Las Vegas, N.M.[3] JASHP has completed projects in 25 states and in four countries. New projects are being developed in Minnesota, Oregon, North Dakota, South Dakota and Oklahoma. Over 5,000,000 people a year benefit from a JASHP project. JASHP is the recipient of Hadassah's Myrtle Wreath Award, "given to individuals and non-profit organizations which have made significant humanitarian contributions to our community."
