Welcome to the Alliance Heritage Center's Digital Museum!
Stockton University and its community partners are collaborating to establish a permanent Center with the vital mission of preserving and disseminating the history and culture of the Alliance Colony and related Jewish farming communities in southern New Jersey.
The Alliance Colony, founded in 1882, was the first successful Jewish agricultural community in America. With the support of Jewish philanthropists, colonists who escaped the brutal pogroms of czarist Russia settled in South Jersey. Their story, from its roots to the present day, deserves to be preserved. It is an American narrative with life lessons that resonate both nationally and internationally.
