The Jewish Russian Community Centre of Montreal

The Jewish Russian Community Centre exists due to generous, kind-hearted charitable contributions of individuals, businesses, and foundations in our community.

Most of our not-so-distant ancestors were strangers to this great nation. It is a long-standing Canadian tradition, as well as a commandment to the Jews, to assist the newcomers to become productive members of the new community.

The Jewish Russian Community Centre of Montreal tries to make the dream come true.

At last, thousands of new Russian Jewish immigrants could freely arrive in Canada! Their long- awaited exit visas allowed them unheard of freedoms and quite a new future. But what was in store for them in Canada? Who would help them morally in their new home?

They came to the Jewish Russian Community Centre for help in their everyday lives in order to learn new tools for maximizing their potentials, materially and morally.

Word soon spread about the growing programs that were offered by JRCC to Russian Jewish immigrants. Within a few years, the programs began to double in size and variety, and then, recently, to quadruple. .
