Mapping Jewish Charleston

From the Colonial Era to the Present Day


Mapping Jewish Charleston was made possible by funding from the Cahnman Foundation, the Charleston Jewish Federation, and the Pearlstine/Lipov Center for Southern Jewish Culture.

Sarah Fick conducted the bulk of archival and property research on people and places, drafted each entry, located historic images, and identified extant buildings to be photographed. She was assisted by Alyssa Neely, Harlan Greene, and Dale Rosengarten in creating thumbnail sketches of individuals and buildings. Alyssa took charge of selecting and editing images, writing photo captions, securing photo permissions, fact checking, and proofreading. Harlan, Dale, and Shari Rabin were principal editors and also authored the historical overviews. Jack Alterman and Sarah provided original photography. Jerry Spiller created the interactive maps and was responsible for web design and production.
