Rosenberg drew his information from the Canadian census of 1931 and previous census records, statistical material from other studies collected by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, and international data sources. His comparative approach, with Canadian Jews compared wherever possible to other ethnic or religious groups in Canada and to diaspora Jewish communities elsewhere, is a major strength of the work. This new edition is a facsimile which faithfully reproduces Rosenberg's meticulous compilation of statistics. It includes a new introductory essay by Morton Weinfeld, who focuses on Rosenberg's life, the era, and the relevance of the book for today's readers. Weinfeld has also prepared a detailed bibliography of Rosenberg's social scientific works on Canadian Jewish life. CONTENTS: Comparative Jewish Statistics * Estimates and Censuses * Growth of Canada's Jewish Population * Geographical Distribution of Jews in Canadian Provinces * Comparative Density of Jewish Population of Canada * Age and Sex Distribution * Conjugal Condition * Place of Birth * Vital Statistics * Intermarriage * Conversion and Apostasy * Immigration * Jewish Immigration * Analysis of Increase in Jewish Population of Canada * The Economic Structure of Canadian Jewry * Social-Economic Stratification of Jews in Canada * Occupational Trends * Jews in Industry * Jews in Trade * Jews in the Professions * Jews in Service Occupations * Jews in Finance * Jews in Agriculture * Jewish Farm Statistics * Citizenship * Jews in Canadian Defence Forces * Languages and Literacy * Education * Morbidity * Criminal Statistics * Anti-Semitism

Louis Rosenberg's Canada's Jews is a pioneering study of the demographic, sociological, cultural, and economic dimensions of Canadian Jewish life in the 1930s. It provides a comprehensive portrait of a community struggling with the insecurities of recent immigration, the early seductions of assimilation, and a second-class status sustained by anti-Semitism. Originally published in 1939 by the Canadian Jewish Congress in Montreal, Canada's Jews has long been out-of-print.
