The Ontario Jewish Archives celebrates 50 years of collecting and sharing history!


February 10, 2023

This year marks the 50th anniversary of UJA’s Ontario Jewish Archives (OJA)!  

Ontario has been home to a vibrant Jewish community for over 170 years. Since 1973, the OJA has been working to collect, preserve, and share stories of Ontario Jewish life—from Thunder Bay to Windsor and everywhere in between.  

Thousands of individuals, families, and organizations have entrusted their records to the OJA over the years, preserving them for future generations to learn from and enjoy.  

The OJA is marking this milestone year with snapshots of our community’s extraordinary history on a special website and through their Instagram. Each week, they’ll reveal a new collection, showcasing the many topics, events, people, and organizations at the heart of Jewish Toronto. 

Check the website or follow them on Instagram @oja and enjoy 50 collections for 50 years!
