The Rise of Jewish Life and Religion in BC, 1858-1948

In this extended essay, JMABC founder Cyril Leonoff surveys the growth and development of the BC Jewish community from the earliest arrivals during the Klondike Gold Rush through the population boom following World War II. Immigrants become industrialists, Synagogues and schools are established, and pioneers leave their mark on a young city.
