Book Launch: Victoria’s Historic Jewish Cemetery

Victoria’s Jewish Cemetery was consecrated in February, 1860, just two years after the first recorded arrival of Jewish immigrants to the region. Still in use today, this cemetery is the oldest in Western Canada (preceding the Jewish section of Vancouver’s Mountain View Cemetery by 32 years).

Join author Amber Woods for the Vancouver launch of her Guide to Victoria’s Historic Jewish Cemetery. Amber will share some of the fascinating stories of the community members buried in the cemetery, and her process of researching this book.
