BOISE, Idaho — Governor Brad Little made a proclamation Monday recognizing the 125th anniversary of Idaho's Jewish community. It was first established in 1895 by Moses Alexander.

"Jewish men and women of Idaho have contributed to the spiritual, commercial, artistic, educational growth and the enrichment of our great state and whereas we recognize resilience in the Jewish community in the face of great adversity and we stand in solidarity," Governor Little said.

Moses Alexander not only became mayor of Boise but was elected Governor as well.

The proclamation took place at 1:00 p.m. at the Governor's office.
