Others are closing in fast on that goal -- Susan Andrews, Brett Balon, Kim Dales, and Paul Wilson -- to name only a few." - from the rear cover.

179 KURELEK, William ARNOLD, Abraham KURELEK, William Jewish Life in Canada. : Paintings & Commentaries by William Kurelek. A Historical Essay by Abraham Arnold. First Edition, First Printing in dustjacket
Hurtig Publishers, Edmonton , 1976, 1976 0888301073 / 9780888301079 
KURELEK, William and Abraham ARNOLD. Jewish Life in Canada : Paintings & Commentaries by William Kurelek. A Historical Essay by Abraham Arnold. Edmonton : Hurtig Publishers, 1976. First Edition, First Printing. Pp (6),7-91,(5). Oblong 8vo, mid-blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

William Kurelek, CM (b. March 3, 1927, Whitford, Alberta – d. November 3, 1977, Toronto) was a Canadian artist and writer.

Abraham J. Arnold, C.M., LL.D. (b.1923, Montreal - d. January 28, 2011, Winnipeg, Manitoba) historian and Jewish leader.

"One of the first Jews to set foot in Canada was a female, Esther Brandeau. Disguises as a boy, she arrived in Quebec in September of 1738 on the ship Saint Michael. After officials discovered her true identity and further discovered that she would not convert from Judaism to Catholicism, they promptly shipped her back to France. From this inhospitable beginning, Canadian Jews have grown to a population of two hundred and seventy-six thousand, a group whose unique contributions to Canada, both as a people and individually, are firmly acknowledged. Their remarkable story has found worthy expression in this collaboration between the artist, William Kurelek, and the historian, Abraham Arnold.

William Kurelek has rightly become one of Canada's most well loved artists and the paintings in this book are among his very finest. From the newly arrived immigrants waiting silently on a lonely Saskatchewan station platform, to the quiet expectancy of a family's Sabbath table; from the serenity of the day's routine on a Jewish dairy farm, to the hustle and bustle of Morosnick's market in Winnipeg, Kurelek, himself a non-Jew, gives us a visible and touching link with the Jewish heritage in Canada in these unforgettable paintings. His commentaries for each of the sixteen paintings in the series tell of the inspiration for and his special relationship to each subject.

Abraham Arnold's deft and lively essay on Jewish life in Canada provides the historic basis of the book. He focusses.on the continuation of the Jewish community in light of the European experience and its development in Canadian society. Arnold explores the myth of the 'jew pedlar'; the evolution of organized Jewish community life in all the major centres; the movements within Judaism from Orthodox to Reform and Conservative; the rabbi; the rise of Talmud Torahs and Peretz Schools; Canadian Jews and ZZionism; the government's closed-door policy to the desperate Jews of Nazi Germany.

Jewish Life in Canada is a remarkable story and a fine collaboration between artist and historian." - from the dj.
