Title
'No Litvaks Need Apply': Judaism in Quebec City
Abstract
The author examines the organized religious life of Jews in Quebec City from its mid-nineteenth century origins to the present. He points out that while individual Jews most certainly lived in Quebec City from the beginnings of British rule in the 1760s, organized community life was relatively slow in developing, especially in comparison with Montreal, which saw the establishment of its first congregation, Shearith Israel, as early as 1768. The first Quebec City synagogue was opened in 1852.
