From the archives: Building the JGH, brick by brick

CardOnce the campaign to build the JGH kicked off in 1929, members of the Jewish community flocked to support the project. Even low-income individuals, who could afford only $1 to underwrite the symbolic cost of a single brick, proudly completed their pink pledge cards.

Children, too, played a prominent role in the building campaign. They received specially designed certificates when they contributed $1 to buy a brick for the hospital.


The Jewish General Hospital’s 85th anniversary is an ideal occasion to take a glimpse into the past. By remembering the extraordinary efforts of the hospital’s founders, supporters, staff and volunteers, we honour the enduring legacy of the JGH.

Look for a new scrapbook item every week during 2019 in JGH News.
