Archives Roadshow: 11 Objects, 11 Stories, 11 Jewish Archives (Part One)

November 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Part one of a three part series featuring Jewish archival collections from across Canada.

Jewish archival collections across Canada hold objects that together comprise the collective memory of Jews who have lived here for centuries. Using one object from their respective collections, eleven archivists from the west to the east coasts of the country will share the stories of these objects that distill the role and importance of their collection in their regional spaces but within the larger context of the Canadian Jewish experience. As part of the Azrieli Foundations’s funding of the Jewish Public Library’s (JPL) Digital Transformation Initiative, we are gathering our partners from across the country to give voice to memory.

Part One features:

  • Montreal Holocaust Museum – Montreal, Quebec
  • Saint John Jewish Historical Museum – Saint John, New Brunswick
  • Library and Archives Canada – Ottawa, Ontario
  • Jewish Public Library – Montreal, Quebec


This is the first part of a three part series, coordinated by the Jewish Public Library and funded by the Azrieli Foundation.
