Admin History/Bio
In 1914, a building was bought on Fifth Street in Crowland and converted into a synagogue, dedicated in 1917. A shochet was retained when available, a mikvah was erected adjacent to the Shul, and a plot of land for a cemetery was obtained. By 1942, there were only a handful of Jews still living in Crowland so the old synagogue was sold and the Italian-Canadian Club on Garner Avenue in Welland was purchased.
