The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre, a branch of the Segal Centre for Performing Arts, was founded in Montreal in 1958 by Dora Wasserman (June 1919– December 2003), a Ukrainian actress, playwright, and theatre director.

The first play was The Innkeeper.[1] Wasserman[2] directed over 70 plays over four decades. One review said that "The most successful of these was A Bintel Brief, based on immigrants' letters to the advice column of the Jewish Daily Forward"[3], referring to a Yiddish newspaper.

The Dora Wasserman is one of the few remaining Yiddish theaters in the world.
