Nom du producteur
B.J. (Bernard Joseph, also known as Bere) Ginsburg was a medical doctor and writer who was involved in the founding of the I.L. Peretz School and Mount Carmel Clinic.
Ginsburg was born in 1894 in Bobroiske, Russia to Joseph Benjamin Ginsburg and Esther (Bassin) Ginsburg. In Russia he attended, but did not complete technical schooling and published a small number of short stories. He immigrated to Canada in 1914 and lived for a time in Fort William, Ontario (now Thunder Bay) before moving to Winnipeg.
B.J. Ginsburg attended the University of Manitoba, first in engineering before switching to medicine. After graduation he spent two years in the Canadian army, where he began his specialization in venereal diseases. He campaigned for the creation of a Jewish hospital and was one of the founders of Mount Carmel Clinic, also serving there as President. Ginsburg also served as President of the Jewish Medical Society.
An advocate for Jewish education, Ginsburg was one of the founders of the Jewish Radical School (renamed I.L. Peretz School after one year) and served on the school’s board. Other Jewish organizations he was involved with include his presidencies of the Jewish Music and Drama Club and the Montefiore Club and serving as a board member of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society. Ginsburg also headed the Scotia District Flood Sufferers Association.
His writing career continued throughout his life, publishing Yiddish essays and short fiction in Jewish newspapers and magazines. He published the novel Generation Passeth, Generation Cometh in Yiddish and his wife, Mary, translated into English. He also started a Yiddish radio program for the Israelite Press.
He married his wife, Mary, in 1929 and died in Winnipeg in 1962.
