Little Synagogue on the Prairie

The OJCS was very fortunate to get a visit today from author Jackie Mills.  She wrote a wonderful new book called Little Synagogue on the Prairie about a Synagogue, the Montefiore Institute, in Alberta that had to be moved three times.


The kids were held rapt by this fascinating true story.

After the story, Ms. Mills gave a copy to each student to take home.  They were incredibly excited and grateful.

Today we at the OJCS got to learn more about Jewish Canadian history and it was a wonderful experience.
