WELCOME TO CANADA: JEWISH IMMIGRANT STORIES OF HAMILTON
EXHIBIT OPENING
SUNDAY, OCT. 22, 2017 AT 10:30 AM

To mark Canada’s 150th year, the Rose and Phil Rosenshein Museum at Beth Jacob Synagogue is presenting an exhibit featuring the stories of eight Jewish individuals or families who came to Canada after 1975, and subsequently settled in Hamilton. Their countries of origin include the former Soviet Union, Turkey, France, South Africa, Israel, Poland, Honduras, and Iraqi Kurdistan. The grand opening of Welcome to Canada: Jewish Immigrant Stories of Hamilton, will take place Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, from 10:30 a.m. until noon. The opening will include a video presentation of the subjects of the exhibit speaking of their immigrant experiences, followed by an interactive discussion and a tour of the exhibit itself. People who attend the exhibit will be able to share their own stories about their immigrant experiences. Beth Jacob’s Hebrew School will hold a special family program that morning, as well, on the theme of immigration.
