Looking back on Jewish community’s impact on life in Cape Breton - Cape Breton Post

Wednesday, March 27, 2019

New Waterford 1922 – synagogue with Hebrew school constructed 1941 – town's Jewish population peaks at 99 people 1967 – synagogue is sold A Better Life The golden period of Cape Breton's industrial age began to take shape in 1901 with the establishment of a state-of-the-art steel mill in Sydney. Then known as the Dominion Iron and Steel Company, the new plant required coal to create the coke needed to fuel the blast furnaces. The obvious source was the plethora of mines in nearby towns like Glace Bay and New Waterford. The problem was a shortage of workers. Part of the solution was found in Eastern Europe, where potential employees were offered free Trans-Atlantic passage in return for work in the pits. According to Rabbi Ellis, most of the Jewish newcomers arrived with little or no resources save for the support of family and fellow Jews. "They would come with some pocket money but not a whole ton of it necessarily - some people may have had rings or pearls, but it was really a beginning from the beginning," he said. There was plenty of work available in the mines, but the job was dangerous and demanding and the pay was low. Well-known Sydney businessman Martin Chernin, one of the area's unofficial custodians of local Jewish history, said it wasn't surprising that most of the newly arrived Jewish miners didn't stay in the pits for long. "No, they weren't miners - it wasn't the life for them," said the 74-year-old Chernin, whose grandfathers both arrived in Cape Breton from Belarus. "They saw great business opportunities here because of the heavy industrialization and because of the coal and the steel - they became tailors and peddlers and eventually shop owners and professionals." But while life was safer and opportunities more plentiful, the Jews who came to Cape Breton weren't always welcomed with open arms. Discrimination Among those seeking a better life were Jews fleeing from the constant threat of harassment and violence they faced at home. But, while they found a much more safe and tolerable environment, it was not, according to Ellis, without discrimination. "At one time, Canada was not that tolerant of a place, and there was lots of anti-Semitism - it wasn't necessarily bloody, but it was very definitely here in those days," noted Ellis. "Cape Breton was different - Halifax, for example, was an old British town with old British-type ways, while Cape Breton had more Scottish and Irish Catholic communities that had themselves been persecuted and so they had somewhat of a natural understanding of what the Jews were going through." Sydney native Stephen Nathanson recently discussed anti-Semitism during a January presentation to the Old Sydney Society about Cape Breton's Jewish communities. "When they came to Cape Breton they found the discrimination was insignificant - yes, it was here, but compared to Europe it was like a little tap on the backside," said Nathanson, whose lecture on the island's Jewish history attracted a full house to the society's new home in the former Bank of Montreal building at the corner of Charlotte and Dorchester streets. img alt="Sydney native Stephen Nathanson presented an overview of Jewish life in Cape Breton in January when he addressed a packed house at the Old Sydney Society’s home in the old Bank of Montreal building at the corner of Charlotte and Dorchester streets in Sydney.

Auntie Ellen.' Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre. White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate." She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program. "She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday. White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre. "I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
