Title
The Sons of Aaron Hart
Abstract
The story of Aaron Hart (c.1724-1800) and his four sons: Moses (1768-1852), Ezekiel (1770-1843), Benjamin (1779-1855), and Alexander (1782-1835). The author examines their business, religious and political undertakings and their contributions to the Jewish community of Lower Canada. The author points out that the Harts faced similar problems facing most Jewish families in turn of the nineteenth-century Quebec: the problem of earning a living, of having the same rights as other British merchants who came to Quebec, and the problem of survival as Jews.
