Would Have Canadians Erect Jewish Museum

Download PDF for this date

A suggestion that Montreal Jewry should erect a museum for Canadian Jewish records of Jewish contributions to the Dominion has been made by George Dobsevage of New York at a meeting of the local Young Judaea here.

He also recommended establishment of chairs in Jewish history, literature, philosophy and law at Canadian universities through endowments by Jews.

A recent session of the Canadian Jewish Congress approved a resolution to establish a historical museum.
