Quebec Preserves Bagg Street Shul

The Religious Heritage Foundation of Quebec, an organization devoted to preserving religious buildings of architectural or historical value, is spending $230,000 to help preserve and maintain Congregation Temple Solomon on Bagg Street and better known as Beth Shloime.  The Bagg Street Shul, the oldest synagogue in continuous use in Montreal, has already received $80,000 of the funds.  The congregation quickly spent the money on desperately needed repairs.  The next installment will finance replacement of the windows, repairs of the roof, the installation of an alarm, and basic upgrading of the electric, heating, and plumbing systems.
