The Verdun Borough Takes Time Out for Reflection Before Announcing Follow-up Actions on This Matter

VERDUN, QC, Oct. 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Verdun Borough has taken note that the register held today

contains a sufficient number of signatures opposing the project to build a new elementary school

in the L'Île-des-Soeurs neighbourhood to now authorize a referendum.

Such a referendum would concern the zoning amendment planned to build this school on a small part of De la Fontaine park.

747 residents signed the register—479 more than the minimum required to proceed to the next step in such a case,

which would be to hold a referendum. A total of 2,677 residents living in areas adjacent to De la Fontaine park

were eligible to sign this register.

Claude Trudel, Mayor of the Verdun Borough

and responsible for public safety and security on Ville de Montréal's Executive Committee,

stated that he was taking the time to meet with his Council members before commenting on the results of the register

and announcing follow-up actions on this matter.

Synagogue Finds a Home on Nun’s Island

Monday, February 28, 2011
By Levi Stein

Once home to a community of a decidedly different religious order, Montreal’s Nun’s Island now has its own Chabad-Lubavitch center.

Rabbi Levi and Mushki Itkin recently moved from Brooklyn, N.Y., to establish the Chabad House just a few miles from downtown.
From there, they run a synagogue and community center with Torah classes, Shabbat meals, youth programs and holiday celebrations.

“We just finished our first series of Torah classes,” stated the rabbi, “and one person decided to start donning the prayer boxes known as tefillin every day.”



Rabbi Levi Itkin and his wife, Chaya Mushka, a young couple from New York, have opened the first Chabad centre on Nuns’ Island.
They are offering weekly Torah classes at their home and organizing holiday events. Every Friday, they deliver challahs to Jewish homes and invite guests for Shabbat dinner.
The Jewish population of Nuns’ Island may be small, but Rabbi Itkin said it’s his mission to bring a sense of pride to Jews wherever they are.
He’s also extending his reach into Verdun and across the Champlain Bridge to Brossard. “I think there are more Jewish people in this area than people think. 
They are just anonymous,” he said. Visit or call 762-1298
