For the Love of Camp

« Je suis très attaché aux camps de vacances juifs, a expliqué le président de l’Initiative des camps du Fonds Générations de la Fédération CJA Martin Schwartz, parce que je crois — et toutes les statistiques le prouvent — qu’en passant leurs étés dans un camp de vacances juif, les jeunes Juifs se transforment en des adultes engagés et à l’esprit vif. Ce sont eux qui formeront les piliers d’une communauté juive forte et dynamique. »

A Century of Literature and Learning at the Jewish Public Library

The Jewish Public Library (Yidishe-folks-Bibliotek) officially opened its doors on May 1, 1914 in a small flat at 669 St-Urbain Street. Today, the JPL continues to play its critical role as cultural bridge, between the Montreal Jewish community’s past, present, and future.

The first clause of the founding principles of the JPL 100 years ago stated that “The People’s Library is a People’s Institution, founded by the People for the People.” From beginning, JPL didn’t want to be just shelves of books, but became a centre of culture, particularly Yiddish culture, with world renowned authors’ visits, courses, lectures, and social activity.
