Welcome to the Saint John Jewish Historical Museum, the centre of Jewish heritage, culture, and history in the heart of Uptown Saint John, New Brunswick. We tell the story of the Jewish community of Saint John from its beginning in 1783 to the present day.
Follow the waves of immigration to Saint John and explore Jewish traditions and customs. A series of changing exhibits recall the richness of family, business and organizational life that flourished from the 1920s to the 1960s.
Museum tours led by members of the Jewish community give visitors a unique first-person view of local history and cultural experience.
Connect to your roots - meet your neighbours - share your stories.
The Saint John Jewish Historical Museum is located in Uptown Saint John, just two blocks from Kings Square.
We hope you are well in these challenging times. This year COVID-19 has resulted in many changes, both in what we do and in how we interact.
The Saint John Jewish Film Festival is adapting to these changes by presenting our Festival in an on-line format. If you have email and internet access, you will be able to view our films from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The support we receive from our sponsors for the Film Festival is crucial. We are asking for your support as a 2020 Jewish Film Festival sponsor to help us provide these films and to enable the work of the Saint John Jewish Historical Museum to continue.
This past year we were able to bring in speakers, have book launches and develop a lecture series. Our purpose is to educate the general public about Judaism and the tragedy of the Holocaust, as well as to develop and expand on our many exhibits. We are asking for your support to help us continue this work. Without your generosity and passion, this will not be possible.
Your sponsorship can be provided in the amount that suits you. The enclosed information sheet provides different levels of support. A tax receipt will be provided. After receiving your sponsorship, a unique non-transferable link for each film selected will be emailed to you approximately one week prior to the showing.
The 2020 Saint John Jewish Film Festival will run from October 17 to October 22. We lookforward to "seeing you at the movies".
