All in the Family

In honour of Family Day this February, we are inviting people to share cherished family stories, family photo or family tree with our community. JHSSA staff will be in the JCC lobby from 9am to noon on both days to collect and scan material relating to local Jewish history.

We are especially interested in family trees, family anecdotes, photographs and original documents relating to your family history. Material can be donated to the JHSSA or scanned and returned. Please contact us for more information.

Date Correction: The Fairmont Palliser Hotel and its Jewish History

Local historian Harry Sanders will share stories about the Jewish community‚Äôs connections to the Palliser Hotel, gleaned from his research for his forthcoming book, The Castle by the Tracks: Calgary’s Historic Fairmont Palliser Hotel.
