New Feature in our Jewish Museum

“Jews in the News” is a new feature being added to many new and older exhibits in the Jewish Museum of the American West. “Jews in the News” will be a short article taken from a newspaper approximately at that time and that place showing activities of our early Jewish pioneers who were involved in all parts of the community – from commerce, politics, law enforcement, etc.

Unlike little Rabbi Belinski who had to be protected by Harrison Ford in “The Frisco Kid,” and the “meek” Sol Levy, the shop keeper in Edna Ferber’s “Cimarron,” Jews stood tall and were an important part of each community in the Wild West. (Note: Edna Ferber was Jewish.)

We have recently been updating all of the exhibitions within our virtual museum.

Now you will see more and larger photographs.

There is also a fair amount of material given to us by family members of these Jewish Pioneers.

These are the last 10 Exhibits added to the Jewish Museum of the American West:

Reuben Goldstein & Family, Pioneer Jewish Fur Traders and Merchants in Juneau, Alaska

Jacob Jackson Noah, Pioneer Jewish Attorney of St. Paul, Minnesota

Julius Austrian, Early Jewish Pioneer Merchant of Northern Minnesota & Wisconsin
