Blog Volunteer


Do you love to write and tell stories? How about performing research? Help bring Ottawa Jewish history to life by volunteering at the archives and telling some of our communities amazing stories.

The Ottawa Jewish Archives is looking for a volunteer to help write monthly blog posts. L’Dor V’Dor, meaning from generation to generation, is the blog of the Ottawa Jewish Archives and helps to tell stories of community life in Jewish Ottawa. L’Dor V’Dor articles are written by staff and volunteers at the Ottawa Jewish Archives, utilizing archival materials to tell those stories.
