Ghetto Shul launches Jazz Fest week music series

From July 1-7, Ghetto Shul, the grass-roots student-run synagogue serving the downtown Montreal community, will be hosting a musical series in affiliation with the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Named for the Student Ghetto east of the McGill campus that it calls home, the Ghetto Shul is a grass-roots student-run synagogue serving the downtown Montreal community. Striving to offer Jewish experiences accessible by Jews from every walk of life, Ghetto Shul services generate an atmosphere of warmth and community found in few other places in North America. With events ranging from Friday-night services full of song and dance to organized learning opportunities to holiday celebrations and Klezmer jam sessions, the Ghetto Shul capitalizes on the wide range of young Jewish life and creates memories, friends and a community for any Jew living in, studying in, or simply visiting downtown Montreal.
