Army Synagogues for Soldiers Planned in Canadian Army Camps

Download PDF for this date

The likelihood that a number of small Jewish houses of worship will be erected in army camps throughout the Dominion was seen here today. For some time now there has been a standing request for a more suitable place where Jewish soldiers could observe their religious services.

The current procedure is to hold the services in one of the huts operated by the service clubs. However, it has been felt that a regular Jewish house of worship would be better. Army camps will be the only place where these buildings will be erected as Jewish soldiers stationed near cities can attend services in the synagogues of the near-by municipalities.
