Title
On the Jews of Lower Canada and 1837-1838
Abstract
The years 1837-1838 saw the realization of the dreams of many years for the hundred or so Jews of Lower Canada - the organization of the community, the establishment of a register of these enfranchised Jews, the organization of a congregation and the construction of a synagogue. The author points out that these "emancipated" Jews were also faced with their first civic challenge: the call for voluntary enlistment in the militia defence of the established government.
