Note from a Visitor

To the Rabbi and Congregation of B’nai Israel Synagogue, St. Catharines,
Thank you so much for a wonderful Shabbat service this week. I was in town temporarily and came to daven. You have the most beautiful sanctuary, a truly friendly congregation, and a terrific rabbi.
Many Thanks, Jackie M. (Kingston, ON)
