Centre of Attention

Rivky Kaplan, Amelia Kellow, Sarah Oshry, Mussik Kaplan and Josh Piuti wait patiently for the speeches to be done at the opening Aug. 13 of the new Jewish Education Centre at a Quadra elementary school annex. The centre will provide Vancouver Island for the first time with a full-day Jewish preschool, a weekly Hebrew school, traditional services on Shabbat (Jewish day of rest) and holidays, adult education and a Judaic library. The Vancouver Island chapter of Chabad, one of the largest branches of Hasidic Judaism, is leasing the annex from the Greater Victoria school district.
