Imposing Their Will: An Organizational History of Jewish Toronto, 1933-1948
Showing how issues such as immigration restrictions, poverty, anti-Semitism, and the Holocaust contributed to cooperation between institutions and individuals, Jack Lipinsky provides compelling insights into the formation of one of the world's great Jewish communities. He studies the re-emergence of the Canadian Jewish Congress, the establishment of the Toronto Free Hebrew School, the rise of professionalism in the various philanthropic organisations, and traces the community's shift away from the influence of Montreal. An illuminating look at the growth and strength of a community, Imposing Their Will provides valuable new ways to understand Canadian Jewry, the diaspora, ethnic governance, and the development of Canadian multiculturalism.
