Series I: Administrative Records, 1953 - 2019


Scope and Contents

From the Collection: Administrative records, books, correspondences, news clippings, photographs, and programs document the lives of members of Temple B'nai Israel and their involvement in the Victoria Jewish community starting from its founding in 1872. Of particular interest is the original copy of the Constitution and by-laws of B'nai Israel in 1895, news clippings on famous Victoria Jewish pioneers, and a speech from Godcheaux L. Levi, a descendant of one of the early founders of B'nai Israel, to the Victoria Historical Society. This collection would be useful for researchers interested in the history of the Victorian Jewish community, early and recent publications, and the Temple B’nai Israel.
