Building Community: HCW Walking tour of Historic Jewish Calgary

Join us this year at Historic Calgary Week for an exciting walking tour. Harry Sanders will be our guide to the early Jewish presence in Calgary. His illustrated tour will highlight locations and stories important to the community from the 1880s to the end of the Second World War.

The legacy of this project will be an longer online tour that can be viewed remotely or used for self-guided walking tours. The tour will be available as an interactive map and as a pdf; it will be unveiled at our 2017 AGM, accompanied be additional stories and photos.

Our grateful thanks to the Government of Canada and Calgary Foundation for supporting this project through Canada 150 grant program.
