Portrait of Rabbi Isaac Shapiro

The Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo (JFGT) in conjunction with the Toledo Lucas County Public Library (TLCPL) collect photographs, scrapbooks, newsletters, and more to tell the story of the Jewish people in northwest Ohio.

In particular, Lynn Jacobs has been diligent in finding materials of cultural value to the Jewish people in this corner of the world and ensuring they are preserved in the Local History department of TLCPL. Her tireless efforts have ensured a treasure trove of resources will be made available for the future.
