The archives of the Jewish Historical Society of the Upper Midwest are now located at the University of Minnesota within the Andersen Library at the Nathan and Theresa Berman Upper Midwest Jewish Archives. The archives consist of synagogue and Jewish institutional records, as well as historical materials from rural Midwest communities, family and personal histories, oral histories, photographic and film collections, and genealogy materials. The collection is particularly strong in the areas of Jewish homesteading in the Dakotas, Northern Minnesota Iron Range Jewish communities, Minneapolis and St. Paul synagogue records, Jewish women’s organization records, and materials reflecting life on Minneapolis’s North Side Jewish community.
