Description

Portrait photograph of children attending a child's birthday party in Virginia c.1912. The parents of the boys and girls in this photo were children of the first generation of Jewish settlers that had arrived in Minnesota's Iron Range at the turn of the twentieth century, mainly from Lithuania by way of Superior, Wisconsin. The Jewish community in Range towns was relatively tight-knit. Each of the larger towns, including Virginia, Hibbing, Chisholm and Eveleth had a synagogue at one time or another, and much of the community life revolved around activities related to them.
