May marks Canadian Jewish Heritage Month.  Canadian Jewish Heritage month was established in 2018 to help remember, celebrate and educate future generations about the inspirational role that Jewish Canadians have played and continue to play in communities across the country. The month of May is meaningful to Jewish communities around the world. Notably, it often lines up with Shavuot or the “Feast of Weeks”, which celebrates the spring harvest and commemorates the revelation of the Torah.  As the Canadian Jewish community is the world's 4th largest, there are lots of local works to discover. Below, you will find a list of recent Jewish publications as well as some old favourites. Happy Reading!
