AGUDAS ACHIM CEMETERY
Linder Road, Iowa City, Iowa 

1833:
     Jewish history began in Iowa when Alexander Levi settled in Dubuque.

1859:
     The United States Hebrew Association of Iowa City was founded for the purpose of 
establishing the cemetery that currently serves congregation Agudas Achim.
                      
1921:
     Agudas Achim repurchased the old Jewish cemetery. Why the cemetery was sold remains one 
of the most mysterious episodes in the history of Iowa City's Jewish community, but it appears that 
most of the first wave of German Jewish families left town as the new wave of Russians arrived, 
and when they left, they dug up the graves, sold the cemetery and took the bodies with them.
