The Jazz Heritage Center's Koret Heritage Lobby

1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA

On view in the Koret Heritage Lobby at the Jazz  Heritage Center, Jews of the Fillmore celebrates an era when the Fillmore District was home to San Francisco's City Hall and the famous Dreamland Rink, when it was the best place to find a loaf of "Jewish" rye and where, on Sundays, a small neighborhood jazz-record shop owner showcased local music talent.

Jews of the Fillmore is an exhibition at The Jazz Heritage Center's Koret Heritage Lobby and twenty-minute walking tour through the Fillmore district as well as online galleries.

After the 1906 earthquake, the Fillmore district, one of the most diverse and vibrant areas in San Francisco, became home to a thriving Jewish community. Eastern-European, often Yiddish-speaking immigrants took root alongside the many other ethnic and religious groups that lived in the Fillmore district. Fillmore and McAllister streets were lined with Jewish-owned restaurants, bakeries, shops, and kosher markets. Three synagogues, a Yiddish Cultural Center, and a Jewish school, helped transform the Fillmore into a hub for orthodox and secular Jewish cultures, Zionist activism and traditional Jewish learning. Learn more about this neighborhood and its residents at the exhibition, walking tour, and online galleries.
