Seeking Sacred Space 

Magnifying glass

This image of Outremontís Beth David Synagogue comes from a chapbook on synagogues in Montreal and Europe that will soon be available for free from the Institute for Canadian Jewish Studies (for information email: cjs@alcor.concordia.ca). The publication coincides with a symposium called Makom: Seeking Sacred Space, which was held March 3 by the Institute, the Emet Gallery and Congregation Dorshei Emet.

The speakers included archivist Janice Rosen, on Moroccan Jewish saint veneration, art historian Reesa Greenberg, on displaying Judaica, and Emet Gallery curator Evelyn Tauben.
