Jews began settling in Wausau, Wisconsin in 1873. In 1914, they founded Mt. Sinai, the first synagogue in Wausau. In essays, memoirs, and photographs, this volume tells the story of a small Midwestern congregation. Over the years, Mt Sinai has weathered financial uncertainty, inadequate buildings, and the difficulty of finding and keeping a rabbi as a small congregation in a primarily non-Jewish area. At 100 years old, Mt. Sinai finds itself stronger than ever, serving 83 families who span Generation X through "The Greatest Generation." With a beautiful, energy efficient building, a healthy endowment and a beloved rabbi who has been with the congregation for over a quarter of a century, Mt. Sinai really is the little shul that could.
