ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article “A Century of Jewish Life in Western Canada,” which previously was published in the Summer 1987 issue of “The Scribe,” the journal of the Jewish Historical Society of British Columbia (B.C.). It discusses the family history for the Katz family, especially Massey "Gaggle" Katz and her husband Jacob (Jake) Izen, Jewish settlers who emigrated from Russia to avoid the pogroms of the 1880s. Some of the subjects include employment issues, the Louis Riel Rebellion, and Jake's store.
