History Biographical
The National Archives of the Canadian Jewish Congress (now called the Alex Dworkin Canadian Jewish Archives) aims to acquire and preserve documentation on the myriad facets of the Jewish presence in Canada and Quebec. It is in this light that the Archives of the Canadian Jewish Congress set up the project Oral History of the Sephardic community in February 1988. Marie Berdugo-Cohen was engaged to interview various people of the Sephardic Jewish community settled in Montreal and its surroundings. Mrs. Berdugo-Cohen was born in Morocco. After settling in Quebec, she co-wrote, with her daughter Yolande Cohen and with Yossi Levy, the book Juifs Marocains: Témoignages d'une immigration moderne, published in 1987. Mrs. Berdugo-Cohen passed away in Montreal in 1991.
Custodial History
This collection of interviews was created with the assistance of a grant from Employent and Immigration Canada in 1988.
Notes
Availability of other formats: As of February 2016 all of the interviews have been digitized as WAV and WMA files. Video clips have been made containing excerpts from some of the recordings (eg. Simone Harrosh, Meyer Benhaim).General note: After completing the digitization of this collection, a six minute audio montage was created featuring several of the interviewees speaking about their adaptation to life in Canada.

Sephardic Oral History Project interview by Marie Berdugo Cohen. Digitized in WAV format in March 2015. Biography: Simone Harrosh a vécu en Algérie dans une maison qui abritait 12 voisins. Ils se réunissaient tous chez ses parents pour le kiddoush du shabbat, pour célébrer la Soucca, et pour manger la dinde au couscous, à l'occasion de Rosh Hodesh. Son père, Eliahou Sakoun, policier en Algérie, arrivait à la synagogue avec son fusil. Sa mère, Simha Séban, s'occupait de la Hévra Kadisha et du Mikvé à Tlemcen. Simone a immigré en France à 11 ans, ensuite elle alla en Suisse, en Belgique, et à Londres où elle habita avec son mari, et où elle travailla au Central office of Informations. Actuellement, Simone est responsable du Mikvé Young Israel à Chomedey, qui réunit Ashkénazes et Sépharades. Elle nous décrit ici avec détails et précisions, l'éxigence de la Thora concernant Taharat Hamispaha, (la pureté familiale), qui fait partie des mitzvot à accomplir par la femme juive, tels que: les nérot, (bougies du Shabbat), hala (pain),etc. Simone nous parle des menstruations de la femme juive, des vérifications rigoureuses à faire pour savoir si elles ont pris fin, et finalement des préparatifs pour le bain rituel dans le Mikvé, qui représente dit Simone, l'espoir, la vie, une coopération avec Dieu, pour la création.
