This work contains much of the best new research on Canadian-Jewish society, politics, and history by leading scholars in these areas. By examining the achievement of the community and the challenges it faces, this clarifies not only the evolution of Jewish people, but the evolution of ethnicity in Canadian society. The authors compare and contrast modern Canadian Jewry with their own past and their counterparts in the United States. They explore the sources for similarities and differences. The book also studies the sources and dimensions of the challenges that the Canadian Jewish community faces in attempt to survive the exigencies of modern life.
