In 1980, the Washington State Jewish Historical Society is founded to document the history of Jews in Washington state.

The society grew out of the work of the Seattle Jewish Archives Committee, established in 1968. In 1981 the society published its first quarterly newsletter, Nizcor.

In 1990, the society published The Jewish Experience in Washington State: A Chronology. It maintains comprehensive archival collections in coordination with the University of Washington Libraries Special Collections, Manuscripts and Archives, in Seattle.
