Insight On Business the News Hour

Recording the History of Iowa Jews

July 26, 2021

It's a major effort: "Collect the audio and video history of the Iowa Jewish Community so that these memories will live on for generations." You are about to meet Sandi Yoder the Director of the Iowa Jewish Historical Society and Susan Jellinger the audio/visual assistant who conducts these interviews. So, what is the business angle?  As people migrated into Iowa a great many Jews followed. First as town-to-town peddlers selling everything from cloth to pots and pans. As time went on they set down roots and opened shops and stores. They became bank presidents and insurance executives, doctors, lawyers and the working families that took part in creating what exists today. Click ahead and learn what these very interesting women are contributing to the State of Iowa one interview at a time.
