Collecting, preserving and sharing community
memories of Jewish life in British Columbia




The archives acquires records that document Jewish life in BC. With over 320 linear metres of textual records, 325,000 photographs, and 900 oral history interviews documenting the history of hundreds of local Jewish organizations and close to a thousand Jewish families, the JMABC strives to make our archival holdings accessible in the interest of encouraging researchers to further document our community’s rich heritage.


The photographs in the JMABC archives have been made available online through the generous support of
Yosef Wosk.
