History Biographical
Born to Romanian immigrant parents in 1908, Tressa (nee Schwartz) Jacobson grew up to be an active member of the Montreal Jewish community. She was a founding member of the Ein Kerem chapter of Montreal Hadassah, a lifetime member of Canadian-Hadassah WIZO and a member of the National Council of Jewish women. She also served on the Jewish Music Council of Montreal. In 1933, Ms. Jacobson was elected Queen Esther and her prize was a trip to Palestine. While there she wrote several letters detailing the gaiety of her trip abroad to Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jaffa and Petah Tikvah. Upon her return, Tressa further document her trip by writing an article of it in the Canadian Jewish Chronicle.
