How Jewish is Jewish Windsor?
For the first time, Windsor’s Jewish community, which numbers about 1,500, is the subject of a study to determine the community’s “religiosity.”
Dr. John Cappucci, a scholar at Windsor’s Assumption University — a Catholic institution that was the forerunner to the University of Windsor and is now federated with it — is undertaking the research for a population that has in many ways existed under the radar.
