About the Event
Congregation Ahavath Beth Israel is the oldest synagogue in continuous use west of the Mississippi River. Moses Alexander, who served as the 11th governor of Idaho, was the nation’s first practicing Jewish governor. Many Idahoans know these facts, but the history of the Jewish community in Idaho goes far beyond that. Join us for a forum to learn more and ask questions of a leader in this community.
This Forum is one in a series featuring the stories of communities in Idaho that have often been omitted from the dominant narrative of Idaho's history.
