Giving Voice to Our History
Our tradition takes great care to instill in each generation the desire to treasure, to preserve, to learn, and to pass on our beautiful heritage. What within our homes is more meaningful to our families than the items and stories that were so important to our parents and grandparents? These irreplaceable objects that were so much a part of their lives are most worthy of preservation, and artifacts collected from different members of the community do, in fact, serve a much larger purpose. They can illuminate a whole era of time, conveying fresh insights into the history of the Jewish community, better than any words alone can do……

Central Iowans are most familiar with Rabbi Barry Cytron from the time he spent as the congregational rabbi at Tifereth Israel Synagogue from 1972-1983. In 1983, Rabbi Cytron moved to the Adath Jeshurun Congregation in Minnetonka, MN, arriving at the beginning of their centennial year and led that congregation for the next 12 years.
Rabbi Cytron received a B.A. and a M.A. from Columbia University, was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and earned a Ph.D. from Iowa State University. With colleague Earl Schwartz of Hamline University, he has written two texts exploring Jewish ethical teachings, When Life is in the Balance and Who Renews Creation. He is also a regular contributor to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
