HHS Welcomes Elaine Steinberg at the Hudson Community Center

For our February 11 2013 meeting, long time Hudson resident Elaine Steinberg will discuss the presence of the Jewish Community in Vaudreuil-Soulange in collaboration with Jean-Luc Brazeau.

M. Brazeau is archivist with the Centre Presque’ile. He will present documents to demonstrate that Jacob Franks was the first known Jew to have lived in Vaudreuil-Soulange from 1820 to 1840 and was a business partner of Aird, Ogilvy and Robinson.

PLEASE NOTE: the meeting will take place in the Youth Centre, downstairs in the Community Centre, at 7.30pm on Monday February 11th. (NOT at our usual rendezvous at St. James.)
