The stories we tell...
Since 1914 the Archives' mandate has been to collect, preserve, and make available the social, economic, and cultural accomplishments of Montreal's Jewish community using original documents, photographs and recordings. Our clients are local, national and international, made up of both Jews and non-Jews, who regard us as a vital educational source.

The Archives house collections of individuals, institutions, associations, and schools depicting the history and life of the community during the past 250 years. The collections include minutes, correspondence, programs, flyers, posters, manuscripts, artifacts, audio-visual materials and more than 30,000 photographs.

The work of the Jewish Public Library Archives is generously supported by
the Alex Dworkin Foundation for Jewish Archives, the Azrieli Foundation and the Peter and Ellen Jacobs Virtual Archives Fund of the Jewish Public Library.
