Although there are but 25 Jews among the population of 10,000 persons here, High Holy Day services were held for them each year by Cantor David Berg, of Milwaukee, who has officiated at these services for twenty years. Although the small congregation is suffering from financial difficulties, Rosh Hashonah was celebrated as usual.
