Good Fences do not Necessarily Make Good Neighbors: Jews and Judaism in Canada's Schools and Universities

By Michael Brown

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Fall 1999

In Canada, religion and education are intertwined. When education underwent a shift towards multiculturalism in the 1950s, providing more space for Jews in the public school system, Canada saw a rise in Jewish day schools and Jewish studies programs at universities. This article explores the history of education in Canada as it relates to Jewish inclusion and exclusion, and offers insights into modern developments, both in the secular/public and Jewish/communal realms.
