Early Indiana Synagogues and the Germanic Period of Indiana Jewish History
Indiana’s early German-speaking Jewish communities left a rich legacy in the state with the founding of congregations and the building of temples/synagogues. They left Prussia, Swabia, Austria, Bavaria, Posen, Alsace-Lorraine, and Bohemia to settle in and build in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Evansville, Lafayette, Columbus, Ligonier and other places.
