Like Everyone Else, but Different

“Morton Weinfeld, a McGill sociology professor and the son of Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors, provides a much-needed overview of Canada’s 350,000 Jews. He describes their lives and concerns in the 21st century, and traces their contributions to this country since the first permanent Jewish settlers arrived in the 1760s. The book aims to present “the big picture,” and succeeds admirably, offering colourful observations gleaned from scholarly research, interviews, and personal experience.” – Louise Abbott
