The field course ANTH 395 will be offered this summer from May 8 - June 7, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30-2:20.

The Jewish Cemetery

A public presentation entitled The Jewish Cemetery in Victoria 1859 to 2016 is scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the Congregation Emanu-El, 1460 Blanshard Street in Victoria.

Join members and friends of the Congregation Emanu-El, the Old Cemeteries Society and students and faculty from the University of Victoria for an evening discussion on current research being done in and about Canada’s oldest Jewish cemetery.

Each of the students will present their findings after a summer working at the cemetery. You are encouraged to come and learn about the great work being done.

I would encourage you to come out to support the students and learn about the activities at the Jewish Cemetery.
