Education and Schools

The Jewish Public Library Archives holds the archival collections of the Jewish Peretz Schools, the Jewish People’s Schools, the merged Jewish People’s and Peretz Schools and the United Talmud Torahs.  Each of these schools has played and continues to play a major role in Montreal’s Jewish community.  In addition to these school archives, the JPL-A also preserves additional educational material from Jewish Montreal educators such as Bernard Figler, Yacov Zipper and Shulamis Yelin.  The JPL-A puts great importance on the preservation of educational materials and will continue to digitize material to add to this site.

Digitized material currently housed on this site includes excerpts from issues of Kinder Klangen, a student publication from Jewish People’s Schools.  Students provided articles in English and Yiddish for this publication.  The excerpts provided here also include “war reports” prepared by the students.
