ACJS Conference 2019 in Vancouver
The ACJS is pleased to announce our 2019 conference in Vancouver. Our annual Community Day will take place at Vancouver’s Peretz Institute for Secular Jewish Culture, and we welcome all members of the Vancouver community to join our ACJS presenters and members free of charge. Because space is extremely limited, we ask that any non-ACJS or CSJS members please register on our eventbrite page.
The final two days of the conference will take place at the University of British Columbia, in association with the Peretz Institute, the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, the Concordia Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies, the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies, and the Vered Canadian Jewish Studies Program. The conference will provide a platform for exciting and original research on Canadian Jewish life, past, present and future. These presentations are open to anyone who has registered for the ACJS conference.
This year, a generous donation in memory of Robert L. Kemeny will provide scholarships to all of our full-time student presenters. A Hungarian-born survivor of the Holocaust with a passion for books, art, and Judaism, Robert Kemeny would be delighted to know how a small contribution will help some students learn more about the Jewish experience in his Canadian home, in particular in his adopted city of Vancouver.
