Come face-to-face with notable Jewish Ottawans and learn more about these figures, their lives, and contributions to Canada’s public service and political landscape. Whether they were born in Ottawa or came to the city later in life, these individuals led storied lives and are part of the fabric of our community and our country.
This is a virtual representation of an exhibition originally designed to take up physical space. In the gallery space, the arrangement of portraits mimicked the style of a family photo wall, and like the pictures on our walls at home, they invited us to reflect – they remind us of lives lived with purpose and meaning and they call for us to focus on the very things that make us human.
In this visual representation, we invite you to flip through the photos as if you were going through a family photo album, allowing you to enjoy the portraits in the spirit that the exhibition initially intended.
To learn more about each person photographed in the gallery, peruse the side-menu to open individual biographies featuring images from the Jewish Bulletin.
