Jewish Agricultural Colonies in Kansas #usa


Jeff Marx
 

For those of you researching Jewish agricultural colonies in the US, especially in Kansas, my article on the history of the Touro and Leeser colonies was just published in Kansas History: A Journal of the Central Plains 43, no. 1 (Spring 2020). In it, I advance a new theory for the failure of the colonies. The article also explores the backgrounds of the following Jewish colonists: Adler, Gerson, Herbst, Hindin, Isenberg, Lazarovnik, Mayer, Mogilewich, Retsky, Saibelson, Schulman, Stotter, Warschawski, and Zatulovsky. It is available through the Kansas Historical Foundation (kshs.org).
