Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>

The JGS of Montreal, in association with the
Jewish Public Library, is pleased to announce
as our guest speaker: Rick Karp

Who will speak to us on
The Jewish Presence During and After the
Klondike Gold Rush 1898-1915

The Jewish Cultural Society of Yukon researched and gathered a significant
amount of information that documents what sort of commerce, employment, and
other activities the early Jewish citizens of Dawson City Yukon were
involved in during the Gold Rush, and the significant impact of those people
on North American society. Their presentation will tell the story of the
finding and rededication of the Jewish Cemetery in Dawson City, creating and
updating a new traveling display, and the biographies and stories of the
amazing Jews that took part in the Klondike Gold Rush.

The meeting will be held on
Monday, March 11, 2018 at 7:30 pm
Gelber Conference Centre
5151 Cote Ste-Catherine/1 Carre Cummings
