Notice biographique / histoire administrative
In 1915, Jewish communities across Canada and in other countries were realizing the need for national Jewish organizations, which could defend and represent Jewish concerns locally and internationally. The Canadian Jewish Alliance was founded in Montreal in 1915, so that it could establish such an organization. Because of the outbreak of World War I, the Canadian Jewish Alliance also engaged in war relief, to aid Jewish civilian sufferers throughout Europe. Its aims also included the advancement of Jewish education and social welfare. Similar committees were formed throughout Canada. The Canadian Jewish Alliance became the Canadian Jewish Congress in 1919, which incorporated all the above goals, as well as the democratic representation of the entire Canadian Jewish community.
