The Canadian Jewish Mosaic is an excellent introduction to the Jewish community of Canada, now one of the largest and most important in the world. This well-written, interesting books brings together the work of leading Canadian scholars on topics that vary from the history of the Jews in Canada to their occupational and social structures, their subgroups, their problems in maintaining Jewish identity, education and culture, and their approaches to these recurring issues of intermarriage, anti-Semitism, and relations with Israel and other Jewish communities.
