Canadian Jewish Congress has
published a study of the growth
and changes in the distribution
of the Jewish population of
Winnipeg, based on the 1961
census. The study was compiled
by Louis Rosenberg, director of
the Congress Research Bureau.
The study deals with the
changes in the geographic dis-
tribution of the Jewish popula-
tion in the Metropolitan census
area of Winnipeg and in each
of the census tracts in the cen-
sus years of 1941, 1951 and 1961.
The statistics used are of those
who reported themselves in the
1951 and 1961 censuses as
Jewish by religion.
The study reveals that in
1961 Winnipeg was the third
largest Jewish community in
Canada, although it is the fourth
largest city in the country, with
a total Jewish population of
