Na’amat Canada branches across the country have strong connections in our cities. Here are a few examples of projects and initiatives that serve our local communities.
Ottawa Jewish Directory
Na'amat Canada Ottawa has been publishing the directory since 1951 and we are currently celebrating our 70th anniversary edition. The directory is a vital resource in many Ottawa homes, with information about community institutions and services, as well as listings for members of the Jewish community. Listings started off as telephone number and address, but over the years have evolved to include cellphone numbers and email addresses.
Na'amat Canada Montreal publishes a January-December calendar annually that features information about Na'amat, advertisements from our supporters, and Jewish calendar information. Many donors add their special commemorative dates to the calendar (birthdays, anniversaries, yahrzeits). The calendar is distributed at various community venues and is free of charge. During the pandemic, we used the calendar to help promote local businesses.
