Take Our Kids to Work Day Take Our Kids to Work Day will be hap­pen­ing on Wed., Nov. 14. On this day, Gr. 9 stu­dents across Canada will spend the day in a work­place set­ting with a par­ent or an­other adult they know. This valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence pro­vides stu­dents with a unique glimpse into the world of work. The next pre­sen­ta­tion in UPEI’s Is­land Stud­ies Lec­ture Se­ries fea­tures Dr. Joseph Glass speak­ing on the life and times of Dr. Leo Frank, a Jewish Is­lan­der and fox farmer.

The lec­ture is Tues­day, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. in the Fac­ulty Lounge of UPEI’s SDU Main Build­ing. All are wel­come and the event is free to at­tend.

Hid­den away in Strat­ford, a small mu­nic­i­pal park is named in mem­ory of a for­mer res­i­dent, Dr. Leo Frank, a unique in­di­vid­ual in the Jewish and gen­eral his­tory of P.E.I.

In 1915, he es­tab­lished the Rose­bank Fur Farms: a prof­itable busi­ness and show­case for black sil­ver fox ranch­ing as fea­tured in many post­cards, stere­o­scope cards, ar­ti­cles in North Amer­ica news­pa­pers, and a mo­tion pic­ture.

Frank did not draw at­ten­tion to his Jewish­ness un­til after his mar­riage in 1935. Al­though the ranch ceased op­er­a­tions in 1944, he and his wife Ruchamah lived at Rose­bank un­til 1958. The lec­ture high­lights the story of the man memo­ri­al­ized in green space in Strat­ford.

De­liv­er­ing the lec­ture will be Dr. Joseph B. Glass, a re­cent ar­rival to P.E.I.

Born in Toronto, Glass stud­ied and taught at the He­brew Univer­sity of Jerusalem for over twenty years. Glass pub­lished re­search has looked at Sephardic Jewish en­trepreneurs in Jerusalem, Amer­i­can and Cana­dian Jewish mi­gra­tion, and the con­nec­tion be­tween Canada and the Holy Land.

Since his ar­rival on P.E.I. Glass he has been re­search­ing P.E.I.’s early Jewish his­tory un­til the mid-twen­ti­eth cen­tury.

He has un­cov­ered a wealth of in­for­ma­tion and is pre­par­ing ar­ti­cles and a book on this lit­tle­known group in the Is­land’s his­tory.
