The Jews in Canada

The first settlers came from Spain, where they had been wealthy, industrious, peaceful and law-abiding. In 1768 descendants of the exiles from Spain and Portugal settled in Montreal, bringing with them the noble, chivalrous inheritance of their fore fathers, and, with their usual energy organized the first synagogue.

I came across an old book in pdf format, "The Jews in Canada", and while it is not in good condition it is still readable so thought I'd make it available for you to read.

You can download the book here
