Ivan Eisenberg

Ivan Eisenberg moved to Las Vegas in 1947 at the age of seventeen and was part of the formation of Midbar Kodesh Temple. Eiseneberg’s family moved to Las Vegas because his mother had relatives in town. Once the family was established in Las Vegas his father established Ideal Office Equipment where Eisenberg started working at in 1954 and still works there today. Eiseneberg attended Las Vegas Hish School, the only high school at the time, and graduated in 1948 and then continued his education at the University of Nevada Reno. During the late 1990s Eisenberg worked on forming Midbar Kodesh Temple. He married his wife, Bernice, in 1956.

Because we are no longer actively fundraising for the Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project, we are directing all related donations to our Oral History Research Center for the pursuit of other meaningful oral history projects.
