History Biographical
Sharon Gubbay Helfer is a scholar-practitioner in the area of inter-cultural dialogue. She was born in 1949 in Winnipeg, Canada. Her father, Ezra Rahamim (Eric Robin) Gubbay was born and brought up in the Baghdadi Jewish community of Calcutta and then trained as a physician in London, England, before immigrating to Canada in 1948. Sharon's mother, Aline Beberachvili, was born in Alexandria, Egypt. Her maternal grandfather was from an old Jewish community in Akhaltsikhe, Georgia, and her maternal grandmother from Istanbul, Turkey. Aline graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London and subsequently became a portrait photographer. Following her marriage to Sharon's father and immigration to Canada, Sharon's mother became first a social worker and then an art historian, social historian and author. Sharon Gubbay graduated from McGill University and then worked in the environmental policies field and in education in Montreal, Quebec; Papua New Guinea, and rural Saskatchewan before earning a Masters degree in Comparative Education. She then went to study in Israel, where she met Peter Helfer, a Swedish Jew, computer engineer and software designer. Sharon and Peter married and spent a year and a half together in Israel before moving to settle in Montreal. Sharon returned to studies when her children were young, earning a PhD in Jewish Studies and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio arts, both in 2006, from Concordia University. Since then she has been a lecturer at Concordia, at the Université du Québec à Montréal and at the Université de Montréal. She has also been a postdoctoral fellow both at the Université de Montréal, where she completed an oral history of pioneers of Jewish/Christian dialogue in Québec, and at Concordia's Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. (Source: http://pcls.sharondialogue.ca/about-this-project-2/sharon-bio/). In 2007 she carried out a series of over 70 oral history interviews for the Ontario Jewish Archives' 'Small Jewish Communities of Ontario' project, involving the communities of Belleville, Cornwall, Kingston, Kitchener-Waterloo, Niagara Falls, North Bay, Owen Sound, Peterborough, St. Catherines, Sudbury, and Thunder Bay.
