FORA BRIGHT OUTLOOK FORTHE HOLIDAYS

dike Gold Rush of 1896. Ibday
a National Historic Park, the
town is restored to its colorful,
honky tonk turn-of-the-
century appearance and
bustles with tourists and arts
lnd jewelry shops.
Anchorage, with one-half
the state's population, has the
most Jews and the only
synagogue and full-time rab-
bi in the state. Congregation
Beth Sholom, a Reform
°synagogue, outgrew a
24-year-old building and
recently moved to a new
home.
Like many large cities, An-
chorage has a second Jewish
congregation, Shomrei Ohr,
consisting of about eight
traditional Orthodox families.
They hold Sabbath services at
members' homes Friday
nights and Saturdays. They
nave neither a synagogue nor
a rabbi (members are learned
_ enough to conduct services),
but they have a mikvah
(ritual bath) at nearby
Elmendorf Air Force Base.
Historic markers in An-
chorage commemorate two
Jewish mayors: Loepold
David and Zachary J.
Loussac. A pharmacist and
son - of a Russian rabbi,
Loussac opened Anchorage's
first drug store and establish-
ed the city's first public
library. The new, multi-
million-dollar Loussac Public
Library honors him.
At the new Anchorage
Museum of History and Art,
you can see pictures of
Jewish-owned stores in the
original tent city of 1914.
Alaska has no kosher
restaurants, but most cities
have salmon bakes, fish din-
ners grilled on an open fire
outdoors and served with
salad bar. Go Kosher Tours
(800-221-3117) operates a
strictly kosher trip to
Alaska's interior and
southwest: Fairbanks, An-
- chorage, Kenai, Prince
William Sound, and Denali
National Park.
