Historique

The Saint John Jewish Museum opened its doors for the first time in July 1986. The museum has in many respects become the public face of the Jewish community in Saint John. Its primary role is to collect, preserve and display the history of the Jewish community of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. Visitors are welcomed from around the world. In addition to exhibits, the museum also has a research library and archives.

The Louis I. Michelson Archives is dedicated to the collection, preservation and research of documents and photographs related to the history of the Jewish community in Saint John.

Much of the documentation covers the history of the Synagogues and the numerous Jewish organizations which existed in Saint John from 1896 to the present day. Involvement in the local business community, local charitable organizations and military service are also represented. Personal information on the city’s Jewish residents from published and private sources tell individual stories.

The scope of the collections include minutes, records, financial records, newsletters, correspondence, membership lists, events programs, newspaper clippings, family trees, oral interviews and photographs.

A review of fonds level descriptions is underway and these will be added to this web page as they become available.

Donations of material related to the history of the Jews in New Brunswick are welcomed.
