Originally published in 1926, The Jew in Canada is the most thorough and ambitious book ever assembled about the Jews of Montreal, Toronto, Halifax, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Vancouver and numerous other Canadian cities. A treasure trove of history and genealogy, The Jew in Canada is filled with capsule biographies of hundreds of prominent personalities and community leaders, each augmented with an elegant portrait photograph. Interspersed are descriptions and illustrations of many historic synagogues, community organizations and endeavours.
This is an abridged facsimile edition of an original long out of print and almost impossible to attain second-hand. It is certain to be a valuable resource for genealogists, historians, students and everyone else with an interest in Canadian Jewish history. The present edition contains all of the biographical and genealogical material of the original; only several historical essays have been omitted. Paperback, 8.25 x 11 in., 466 pages.
