Vigil for Pittsburgh

October 29, 2018

My Fellow Canadians,

The Sons of Jacobs Congregation would like to invite you to a vigil service for those murdered at the Pittsburgh synagogue. Let’s gather in a display of fellowship and equality for our neighbors to the south.  We hope you will join us to show our sympathy for, and support of, these victims of evil. The service will take place on Friday, November 9th at 7pm. The Sons of Jacob Synagogue is located at the corner of Cassells and McIntyre.

Sincerely,
Howard Kizell
President

The congregation of North Bay’s Sons of Jacob Synagogue is seeking funds to renovate the exterior of their heritage building, located at the intersection of Cassells and Algonquin streets.

The group of artists who enjoy studio space on the second floor are hosting an art show and sale on November 30th (at the same time as North Bay’s Downtown Christmas Walk) to help the congregation meet their fundraising targets.

Any artist, of any age and experience level, may submit work to be sold during the event. Pieces submitted must be for sale, and we may restrict the size and number of pieces per artist, as space is limited. We request that artists donate a percentage of your proceeds to the building fund.

The synagogue will be open to the public during the event, so if you’ve ever wondered what this interesting work of architecture looks like on the inside, this is your chance to find out! Light refreshments will be served.
