Postville grew to become a beautiful community, built on diverse people. Businesses were booming and the community had learned to love one another. In just a few years the population more than doubled.
To celebrate its diversity, every August the city would host â€œA Taste of Postvilleâ€ â€“ a celebration of all the nationalities of the city at which each community would present their cultureâ€™s music, food and entertainment.
Sholom put a lot of emphasis at building the Jewish community. Eventually the community boasted a Synoguge, boys and girls elementary school, boys high school, two mikvaot, a kosher grocery store and many community charities.
