BA
B'nai Abraham in Virginia, Minnesota

Dianne and I are involved in a project to restore B'nai Abraham, a beautiful, but deteriorating and abandoned, historic building, in Virginia, Minnesota that was once a synagogue. It will be for community cultural activities, exhibits and to house a small museum documenting the history of Jewish settlement on the Iron Range. It is the only synagogue building in Minnesota to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The project is remarkably interesting and worthy of support.  You can learn more at www.IronRangeJewishHeritage.org

Sons of Jacob Cemetery and Monument & Dedication Honoring Jewish Homesteaders in North Dakota
The Garske Colony near Devils Lake, North Dakota was settled by Jewish pioneers beginning in 1883. A dedication took place at the Sons of Jacob Cemetery and Monument Honoring the original Jewish homesteaders near Devils Lake, North Dakota on September 17, 2006.  Dianne's great-grandparents, grandparents and parents came from there & she I worked with others to bring the dedication about.   www.SOJNorthDakota.org
