Student of the Week Congratulations to our most recent Student of the Week: Luke Payne.
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.
