The Jews of Winnipeg

Top of page

Their story begins with the first Jewish settlers who fled European persecution around the turn of the century and founded a Jewish community in Winnipeg. Over the years they developed a strong tradition of scholarship, with generous contributions to the arts, business, the professions. This film opens at a fashionable hundred-dollar-a-plate testimonial dinner in a Winnipeg synagogue, then turns to reminiscences and anecdotes from a wide cross-section of people, including television personality David Steinberg, singer Judy Lander, and alderman Joseph Zuken, Q.C.
