The First Jews in North America free pdf Filled with original documents and vintage illustrations, this history chronicles the lives of the Hart family--a Jewish family who settled in predominantly Catholic Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, in 1761. Following Aaron Hart and his descendants for a century, this account not only bares the Jewish struggle for equality and freedom, but also delineates the contributions made by the various family members--including the passing of the Jewish Emancipation Act in 1832 and the creation of the Hart Memorial Trophy for the National Hockey League's Most Valuable Player. A fascinating and comprehensive read, this book breaks new ground in its examination of the Jewish experience in North America.
