Professional Information

Kate Dietrick is the Archivist for the Nathan and Theresa Berman Upper Midwest Jewish Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries.


The Nathan and Theresa Berman Upper Midwest Jewish Archives chronicle the activities of Jewish communities of the region in establishing and building ethnic/religious communities and advocacy organizations, as well as their efforts to promote social welfare in the larger community.

Located at the University of Minnesota's Elmer L. Andersen Library, we are part of the Migration and Social Services Collections, in the Archives and Special Collections, (ASC) in the University Libraries. The collections of the Upper Midwest Jewish Archives includes the records of the St. Paul and Minneapolis Jewish federations, community centers, Talmud Torahs, the Jewish Vocational Service, Jewish Community Relations Council, Hillel, as well as various synagogue records, records of the Minnesota Rabbinical Association, and women's organizations such as Hadassah, National Council of Jewish Women, and Mount Sinai Hospital Women's Auxiliary. In addition, the Upper Midwest Jewish Archives contain a wealth of material collected by individuals about early Jewish settlement and life in Minnesota as well as North and South Dakota. The collections include family papers, club and association materials and ephemera, personal narratives of Jewish life in the upper Midwest, materials documenting family-owned businesses in the Jewish community, as well as related books and publications.

The collections in the Upper Midwest Jewish Archives are available for personal and scholarly research as well as educational use and are an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding the American Jewish experience from a Midwestern perspective.
