Scholarly and personal perspectives on the topic.

s Americans struggle with growing controversy over admitting refugees from violence, we have much to learn from the history of immigration elsewhere in North America. Justice Rosalie Abella, the first Jewish woman to sit on Canada’s Supreme Court, and Professor Irving Abella, a historian of Jewish life in Canada and her husband, are coming to Santa Fe’s Temple Beth Shalom on Saturday, May 4, to offer scholarly and personal perspectives on Canada’s resistance to Jewish immigrants attempting to escape persecution before and during World War II.
