The Jewish Historical Project of North Dakota was a venture headed by Toba Geller, working alongside Ruth Landfield and Lorraine Kasden, in attempts to document the history of early Jewish immigrants in North Dakota. Mostly through correspondence, the project collected family histories and information related to Jewish settlements throughout the state. The goal of publishing a book of their findings was never realized as Toba Geller passed away in 1978.

Historical Note

Toba Geller and Ruth Landfield along with a committee of Fargo women initiated the North Dakota Jewish Project in 1975. It was the second attempt to set down the Jewish history of the state, the first being in the mid-1950s when Toba Geller began researching Jewish families via correspondence. The creators took up research again, incorporating The Jewish Historical Project of North Dakota as a non-profit in 1978 and actively solicited materials from Jews who had grown up in North Dakota in the hopes of publishing a book. The project lost momentum when Toba Geller suddenly passed away in December 1978 and despite her husband Sam Geller’s attempts to continue research, a book was never published. This collection represents the results of a sustained collecting effort. The collection has been augmented since by other individuals donating information about their family’s sojourn in North Dakota.


Collection Scope and Content Note

Records of the project consist administrative planning and correspondence pertaining to the project itself; information on synagogues, cemeteries, and farming colonies and cities; and newspaper clippings pertaining to aspects of Jewish life in North Dakota. Finally, the vast majority of the collection is correspondence with individuals who provide details of their genealogy and retell short family histories.
