The BC Jewish Community Archives


The BC Jewish Community Archives is the heart and soul of the JMABC.

Home to 325 linear meters of material, 325,000 photographs, and over 900 oral history interviews, this peerless collection documents the history of Jewish life in BC dating back to 1858. Each year we work with individuals, families, and organizations to grow the collection, ever striving towards a comprehensive understanding of our community history.
