About

Hidden Treasures is a project of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, the only democratically elected, cross-communal, representative body in the Jewish community.   

Archives featured on the website are part of a national network of state, local and communal archives that will enable you to discover more about the history of Jews and the Jewish community in Britain. It might even help you uncover some of your own family’s history.

We are always looking for new archives to feature so if you are an institution, organisation or community group with an archive that relates to the history of Jews in Britain, then please get in touch.

If you or your organisation is interested in creating an archival collection to contribute to the story of the Jewish community in Britain for future generations, please contact hidden.treasures@bod.org.uk.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to receive updates on events and tips for creating and caring for your archive.
