Biographical / Historical
Congregation B'nai Abraham was founded in Virginia, Minnesota in 1905 and was in continuous use until the mid-1990s when declining numbers of Jews on the Iron Range made for fewer members. In 2004, a group called Friends of B'nai Abraham was established in an effort to save the building. Kay Weber had personal ties to B'nai Abraham and advocated in an effort to save the building and its contents.
