OJA Partnership with York University

The Ontario Jewish Archives in partnership with the ACJS Blankenstein Family Heritage Centre, the Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies at York University, and York University’s Department of History have put efforts to new undergraduate student research conducted at the OJA. The essays have been selected from Professor David Koffman’s Canadian Jewish History Course and his History course. Students were assigned an original research essay, they chose their topics and with the aid of OJA archivists, examined primary sources at the OJA and other relevant archives as part of their research process. They carefully selected archival materials and used them to present new research arguments. Professor Koffman and the OJA hope to expand this to include research from students at other universities across the country. To read the student’s papers click here!”
