Title
Le fonds Conseil communautaire juif de Montréal : un instrument de recherche / Jewish Community Council of Montreal (Vaad Ha'ir) : A Finding Aid
Abstract
The Jewish Community Council of Montreal, also known as the Vaad Ha'ir, was founded in 1922. Hirsch Wolofsky, publisher of the Keneder Adler and the Canadian Jewish Chronicle, urged the Jewish community of Montreal to create a special organization for the purpose of supervising kashruth, which includes the preparation of kosher meat, poultry, and other kosher foods, and for the creation of a united rabbinate. He also drew attention to the fact that there was no representative organization in the community to speak on behalf of the entire community as their bona fide representative. On October 29, 1922, a meeting attended by 164 delegates who represented 73 different organizations and groups created the Vaad Ha'ir.
