Drop in all afternoon to see the beautiful historic sanctuary of the Kiever Synagogue, speak with Sara Ferdman Tauben – author of a new book on Montreal’s early synagogues built at the same time as this Kensington Market treasure – and view an exhibition of stunning photographs by David Kaufman, installed for one weekend only, and meet the photographer!
At 3 PM, Sara will guide a tour of the sanctuary, talking about the architectural features and looking at the Kiever in relation to architectural precedents built in 19th century Europe and synagogues of the same time period in Montreal.
At 3 PM: Birthday Party! Fun for the whole family from ages 1 to 100 with Kensington Market stories, birthday cake, Yiddish song, and a kids-eye tour of David’s photo exhibition. Join your kids in rediscovering Kensington Market at the time when the Kiever was built or join the tour of the sanctuary’s architecture.
Presented by Makom: Creative Downtown Judaism together with the Kiever Synagogue, celebrating their 100th anniversary.
