Jews on the Prairie

Jews on the Prairie.
Tablet Magazine, an online magazine that has interesting and often insightful articles, recently recalled the early Jewish settlers in Western Kansas. "Eight miles from Garden City, Kansas, in a remote landscape of corn fields without end, punctuated only by pheasants and blackbirds, lies an unexpected discovery: several gravestones, the only physical remains of Beersheba, a Jewish agricultural colony established in 1882."

If you are not familiar with this historical settlement, the article, Jews on the Prairieis worth a read.
