The Gray Academy of Jewish Education, the grade nine and ten students of Gray Academy and the Jewish Heritage Centre have joined forces to create an exhibit of drawings that show the vitality of Jewish heritage in Manitoba.
The students have drawn on the rich fabric that is the social, cultural, and recreational life of Jews in Manitoba over the past century. The drawings are a wonderful testament to the creativity and passion that each student has brought to the project. In the process they have acquired an appreciation of how archival collections are valuable sources for preserving community identity and history and imparting information to future generations. No doubt, this recognition and the playing out of their identities has been stimulated, nurtured and nourished in their family environment, school and community.
