BOOK LAUNCHES

Has there ever been a better home for Jews than Canada? At the MNjcc-UTP launch of David Koffman's anthology No Better Home? Jews, Canada and the Sense of Belonging, he'll explore this vital question with contributors Yolande Cohen and Jeffrey Veidlinger. Harold Troper will moderate the conversation, on Friday, May 28, at 2-3pm. Registration is now open.  

No Better Home? Jews, Canada and the Sense of Belonging, edited by David Koffman, begins with a bold question: Has there ever been a better home for Jews than Canada? The anthology brings together leading scholars of Canadian Jewish life as well as eminent Jewish scholars writing about Canada for the first time. Their essays compare Jewish life in Canada with the experience of Jews in other countries, analyze pivotal historical moments and literary texts, and share deeply personal stories. No Better Home? widens the conversation about the quality and timbre of the Canadian Jewish experience.
