A musical synagogue celebration in Victoria, BC, Canada

Every so often we get e-mail, or the Jewish-music mailing list gets e-mail about someone participating in, or doing something interesting that we want to share as widely as possible. Narratives get placed on our "mailto:" page, and I invite readers to peruse Mary Lowther's short account of a ceremony dedicating a synagogue addition at "the oldest Jewish house of worship in continuous use in Canada". The piece was originally posted to the Jewish-music mailing list in response to a query about whether or not Jews still do "Jewish" dancing.
