All JMABC programs are made possible through the generous support of our members and donors. In the coming year, we will be embarking on many exciting programs. Sponsoring a JMABC program is a unique opportunity to increase awareness of your organization while helping to preserve the history of Jews in BC.

This podcast series, set to debut in Summer 2017, will document the important role that food plays in preserving cultural identity among BC Jews. Listeners will meet professional and amateur cooks, balaboostas, farmers, entrepreneurs, and foodies; people from all over the world who now call British Columbia their home. We compare the food traditions of Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, including the unique traditions of Persian, South American, and South African families.
An ideal opportunity for a restaurant, caterer, or food lover to support.
$1,000 per episode with the goal of 12 episodes per season.
This initiative seeks to create a comprehensive record of the lives of Jewish Southern African expatriates now living in British Columbia. Over the coming decade, the JMABC will interview as many as possible of the over 1,000 members of this sub-community, documenting their experience prior to arriving in Canada, and the contributions they have made in the years since.
$8,000 per year.
As part of our Feeding Community series, the Savoury & Sweet Supper Club will provide opportunities to learn recipes and food traditions from Jewish community members. Guests will cook and dine together, sharing in hands-on learning of community heritage.
The JMABC is seeking sponsors to provide funding or in-kind food donations to support this valuable educational program.
The BC Jewish Community Archives are growing at a tremendous clip, and thousands of new archival items are being digitized each month. This is wonderful news, but also means that our digital storage needs are quickly reaching the limits of the space currently available. To accommodate this impressive activity it will be necessary this year to upgrade our Archives drive to a larger capacity drive. You can help us accomplish this and allow the Archives to continue growing at this incredible pace.
$3,000 for materials and labour.
