Notice biographique / histoire administrative
The Poale Zedek ("Workingman's") synagogue was founded in the northern area of Mile End, Montreal, in 1910. The sanctuary of the Mile End building at 7161 St. Urbain Street was constructed in 1920-1922. A notable feature of the interior was a Torah ark of decorated wood with images of books on it, and this, combined with the distinctive old-style women's gallery, made the synagogue a chosen location during the filming of the feature film "Enemies, A Love Story" in the 1980s. After a fire damaged part of the sanctuary in September 1988, the building was sold to the Buddhist community, and is now the CaoDang Buddhist Temple. The Poale Zedek amalgamated with the Adath Israel Congregation of Hampstead, Quebec, in 1992, and the ark was moved to the alternative chapel there.
Histoire de la conservation
The collection was donated by Louis Sheiner, Vice-President of the congregation through the 1970s and 1980s, in particular during the era of the fire and the sale of the St. Urbain Street premises.
