5O Years

This year, the OJA is celebrating 50 years of collecting our community’s history! Since 1973, the OJA has been gathering, preserving, and sharing the stories of Jewish life in Ontario—from Thunder Bay to Windsor and everywhere in between. Help us celebrate this milestone by enjoying a snapshot of what we hold at the OJA. Each week, a new collection will be revealed, showcasing a variety of organizations, individuals, and events from over 170 years of Jewish history in Ontario. Each collection has an important story to tell and a reason why it is being preserved. Check back often for new reveals and enjoy 50 collections for 50 years!
