Mayn Lebns Rayze : un demi-siècle de vie yiddish à Montréal et ailleurs dans le monde, 1946
Abstract
The Polish-born Yiddish writer and newspaper editor Hirsch (Harry) Wolofsky (1878–1949) immigrated to Montreal in 1900. In 1907 Wolofsky founded the Eagle Publishing Company and started Keneder Adler ("The Canadian Eagle"), Canada's first daily Yiddish newspaper. He served as the paper's managing editor until his death. The paper promoted Jewish schools, the establishment of a Canadian Jewish Congress, the creation of a Montreal Jewish Community Council (Va'ad Ha'ir), and the building of what eventually became the city's Jewish General Hospital. Wolofsky published three Yiddish books: a travelogue titled Eyrope un Erets-Yisroel nokh dem Veltkrig ("Europe and the Land of Israel after the World War," 1922); a volume of contemporary commentary on the weekly Torah portions, Fun Eybign Kval ("From the Eternal Source," 1930); and a book of memoirs, Mayn Lebns Rayze ("Journey of My Life" 1946; English translation 1945, French translation 2000).
