Title
Ostropol on the St. Francis: The Jewish Community of Sherbrooke, Quebec – A 120-Year Presence
Abstract
The author traces the evolution of the Jewish community of Sherbrooke from the 1870s to the 1980s. The community was founded for the most part by emigrants from the city of Ostropol in the Russian Ukraine. The Sherbrooke Jewish community began to decline in the 1920s as younger members moved to bigger cities with larger Jewish populations and better economic opportunities. The end came on July 31, 1983, with the sale of the local Synagogue.
