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.
