85th Anniversary - ArchivesJanuary 2019

From the archives: The ice storm of 1998

In January 1998, a massive ice storm paralyzed Montreal and disrupted the supply of electricity for days. The frigid weather forced many people to seek shelter and warmth in public institutions capable of generating their own power. In this time of need, the JGH welcomed all who needed help and provided them with cots in the Samuel S. Cohen Auditorium in Pavilion A.


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.
