the manor
When the OJA did a call out to the community in 2020 inviting individuals to share their Bathurst Manor story, the response was overwhelming. The small Toronto suburban neighbourhood Bathurst Manor, developed and largely built by Jewish community members, widely attracted young Jewish families. In the post Second World War era, families seeking affordable housing were drawn to the attractive new spacious homes, schools, parks, and unencumbered outdoor space. What made Bathurst Manor the Manor is celebrated in this exhibition featuring reminiscences, photographs, artifacts, and documents, donated to the OJA by the baby boom generation, and their families.
The Manor holds a special place in our community’s memory and the Ontario Jewish Archives is working to ensure that this important part of our heritage is preserved for research and future generations. We encourage you to contribute to our growing collection of records and memories of the Manor to help us preserve and celebrate the largely unknown stories of this cherished Jewish neighbourhood, that continues to appeal to Jewish families today.
The OJA and Prosserman JCC invite you to visit the exhibition on view at the Sheff Family Building, 4588 Bathurst Street.
