Ontario's Small Jewish Communities: Virtual Exhibit

Not many people are aware of the rich Jewish history found in some of the smaller communities in Ontario. For example, in my hometown of Cornwall, some of our most successful businesses were built by generations of families in the same traditions as those learned in Eastern Europe.

11 communities are included in the exhibit:
Belleville
Cornwall
Kingston
Kitchener-Waterloo
Niagara Falls
North Bay
Owen Sound
Peterborough
Sudbury
St. Catharines
Thunder Bay
Each municipality includes an introduction,discussion of early community history, religious life, social life, community activities & relations and information about more recent years. Many families and individuals are named, population statistics included, and community local history explored.

To learn more about the role Jewish families played in the formation of these communities, you'll want to set aside some time to fully explore each and every exhibit in this virtual collection!
