History Biographical
Rabbi Dr. Daniel Lewin (?-1997) graduated from the Jewish Theological Seminary and from the University of Breslau (Poland). He was Rabbi, Principal of Hebrew School, and Administrative Secretary of the Clapton Synagogue in London, England (1944-1948). After his 1948 arrival in Canada, he held the position of Rabbi and Principal of Beth-El Hebrew School in Cornwall, Ontario, where his wife, Inuz, taught Sunday school. In 1956, he became Rabbi at the House of Israel in Ste. Agathe, Quebec, until the early seventies, when his daughters, Eva and Judith, left for college and he and his wife returned to Montreal. D. Lewin there became Chaplain for Jewish Inmates of the Provincial and Federal Governments. His father was Dr. Rabbi Louis Lewin (1868-1941), of the former Prussian province of Posen, whom D. Lewin describes as a “historian, bibliographer and bibliophile” in a memorial biography written in 1962 in Montreal. While studying at the Jewish Theological Seminary in Poland, D. Lewin worked as Scientific Assistant at the seminary’s library (1928-1930), where his father’s collection of scientific materials was held. D. Lewin would go on to author numerous short works of history, many of them the products of his continuous study of his father’s original manuscripts, painstakingly detailed research notes, and collections of books and pamphlets.
