Beginning in the 1880s, there was a mass migration of Jews from Eastern Europe to Montreal. Here they established small congregations, replicas of the shuls left behind. To document the movement and development of Montreal’s Jewish community before 1945, much like a detective, Sara tracked the locations of Montreal’s early synagogues. The result is a fascinating story that describes the social, religious, and economic aspects of a distinct group of people through the architectural traces of its culture.
