History

Geographical and cultural context

The Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada is an incorporated non-profit multi-faceted organization involved in preserving, documenting, interpreting and sharing Jewish heritage.

Headquartered at the Asper Jewish Community Campus, the JHC includes a research library, an extensive archive collection,exhibitions of our history through artifacts and displays as well as visiting and seasonal exhibits, and a Holocaust resource and education centre.

Our mission is to be dedicated to advancing and promoting knowledge, understanding and preservation of the cultural and religious life of our people. We also serve as an advocate for tolerance and anti-racism.

We do so through our top-quality museum exhibits, research facilities, educational programs, cultural programs, and special events that our small hardworking staff and many enthusiastic volunteers design, direct, and produce.

The JHC also serves the public as a storehouse of information about the history of the Jewish people in Western Canada. We provide a place where this history can be preserved for the future, viewed through exhibitions, discussed and remembered through our various programs and speakers, and made available through our research room and our extensive archives. Our archivist on staff is available to assist you.

For those of you who can make it to the Asper Campus in Winnipeg, we invite you to view our wonderful exhibits at the Ed and Marion Jewish Museum of Western Canada, remember the Holocaust at the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre, and then come into our offices and browse through our historical material in our research room. If your interest is Genealogy, and you have Jewish connections in Western Canada you are researching, then our material will be of particular interest to you. You may also want to participate in the activities of our Genealogical Institute.

If you have extensive research to do, we recommend you phone first and make arrangements in advance. Our archivist can provide a limited amount of help to introduce you to our materials and help guide you to the items that may be of most use to you. There is no charge to use our reading room or to view our materials in person.

If you cannot make it to our office yourself, our archivist can do a limited amount of research via e-mail for you. If you think we can help you, contact us at: jewishheritage@jhcwc.org
