Back in 1973, the Ontario Jewish Archives, known as the Blankenstein Family Heritage Centre, started to acquire, preserve and today, it is making available documentary sources related to Ontario's Jewish community.
Now, the Government of Canada has announced that it will be providing $195,100 through the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund to support a renovation project undertaken by the Ontario Jewish Archives Foundation. With this funding the Foundation will retrofit the vault and redesign and furnish the public access space and document processing area in the Blankenstein Family Heritage Centre.
The Ontario Jewish Archives is the largest professionally maintained repository of Jewish archival material in Canada.
You can search their archives where they have over 5,000 cubic feet of textual records, photos, newspapers, films, and oral histories.
