Listen While I Tell You

A Story of the Jews of St. John's, Newfoundland

Alison Kahn (Author) 


Of the hundreds of thousands of Jewish immigrants who left Eastern Europe between the 1880s and the early 1920s, a handful settled in Newfoundland. These Yiddish-speaking, Eastern European Jews lived alongside English Protestants and Irish Catholics. This book brings to life the moving story of the Jews of St. John's through the voices and words of the immigrants and their children.
