Beth Jacob Synagogue

Treasures from the Jewish Hamilton Project

The Rosenshein Museum at Beth Jacob presents the second of a four-part series offering the community a window onto the archive of Jewish Hamilton’s oral history.

Some of us know that Dr. William Goldberg, longtime Chief of Medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital, pioneered kidney dialysis in Canada, and contributed enormously to the quality of medical care in the region and the country. But how many of us are aware that as a young med school graduate, Bill was rejected for an internship at St Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, due to anti-Semitism?

Join us at the Rosenshein Museum at Beth Jacob Synagogue to watch the Jewish Hamilton Project video interview and hear Bill Goldberg’s recollections of a life that spanned two worlds. Video footage will be followed by discussion.
