In 1956, against the backdrop of a Jewish world nearly destroyed by the Holocaust, the fusion of the Chevra Kadisha and B’nai Jacob synagogues in Montreal, one of North America’s oldest and fiercely traditional Jewish communities, was a bold declaration of survival. The new congregation built one of the world’s most strikingly original synagogues that today serves as a remarkable architectural affirmation of Jewish spirituality whose roots originate in the ancient Temple built by King Solomon in Jerusalem. Narrated by the congregants themselves and their charismatic young Rabbi Asher Jacobson, 18 Windows features stories ranging from the personal to the mystical, revealing the diverse dimensions of a synagogue: as a house of prayer, a house of study, and an anchor for a spiritual community, many of whose members are not entirely observant but chose to belong to an Orthodox community nonetheless.
