Jews of Minneapolis - Introduction

Many of our Jewish ancestors imigrated to the United States from Eastern Europe and settled in the Duluth, Superior, the Iron Range and the surrounding areas of Northern Minnesota, Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. They came in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This family website is about our family, our huge extended family and about many of the other Jews who settled and lived in this region. This page is specifically about the Jews of Minneapolis.
