From Ship to Shoebox: Exploring Quebec Jewish History Through the Canadian Jewish Archives (Janice Rosen)
QAHN Heritage Talks Online:
From personal diaries to community-building proclamations, from circumcision certificates to obituaries, from comic books to heartrending testimonies: all manner of documentation about the Jews of Quebec and Canada can be found at the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archives, a community institution founded in 1934 by the Canadian Jewish Congress. How did this treasure-trove come into being, why is it still here, and what can it offer you? We will explore these topics and more during this illustrated lecture.

Janice Rosen has been the Archives Director since 1989 of the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archives, formerly known as the Canadian Jewish Congress National Archives. She is also a co-creator of the Canadian Jewish Heritage Network (, a database-driven website showcasing the holdings of several partner archives and museums.
