The Rose and Phil Rosenshein Museum at Beth Jacob Synagogue presents The Jewish Voice of Hamilton, a family-friendly exhibit, that features a snapshot into the dynamic life of the city through the lens of its one-time Yiddish language newspaper and its iconoclastic publisher, Henry Balinson. The exhibit will showcase many items on public display for the first time: several editions of The Jewish Voice of Hamilton newspaper, local letterpress printing artifacts, photographs and other valuable historical and genealogical documents, all part of the Balinson Family Archive, a recent acquisition to the Rosenshein Museum. Issues of the newspaper on display will provide a fascinating snapshot of 1930s and 1940s Hamilton, through its advertisements, features and the provocative editorials of its editor and publisher, Henry Balinson.
