The author discusses the field of Canadian Jewish studies, which, he asserts, is generally neglected outside of Canada, especially in comparison to American Jewish studies, and out of proportion to the size of the Canadian Jewish community. The author describes unique features of and issues facing the Canadian Jewish community, including their place in the modern multiculturalist scheme, their history of immigration and development, and their place in the context of the historical interplay of Canada's French and English populations.
