  • Person
  • 1887-1965

Leib Zuker was born in Poland in 1887 and came to Montreal as a young boy in 1904. Zuker's father was a smith and Zuker was referred to as being largely self-educated. Zuker is best remembered for his enormous contributions and involvement in the Montreal Jewish community. He was integral in the founding of the Jewish Public Library, as well as being part of several other community and national organizations such as the Labour Zionist Movement in Canada, the Canadian Jewish Congress, Jewish Immigrant Aid Services and the Jewish Community Council. In 1959, in recognition for outstanding services to the Jewish Peretz School, that institution named the new school building the L. Zuker Building.
