Victoria's Congregation Emanu-El

Victoria B.C.
Has Jewish Treasure

MOLLY AROST STAUB SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

S

ummer provides an
ideal time to visit
areas that might be too
cold for some travelers
at other times. One of the
loveliest destinations is Vic-
toria, in Canada's British Col-
umbia, with a surprisingly
important Jewish attraction.
Downtown Victoria is a
pretty city with its Victorian
British buildings facing the
harbor, from where tour boats
depart. The domed 1898
Parliament buildings are im-
pressive, as is the gabled 1908
Empress Hotel. Its dark wood
walls and pink chintz fabrics
are reminiscent of a lordly
British country home. The
Crystal Room is just the place
for tea and crumpets.
The streets, where double
decker buses roam, are
enhanced by the city's 850 an-
tique lampposts with hanging
baskets brimming with crim-
son geraniums. (Even the gas
stations here have hanging
baskets.) Flower colors seem
more vivid here than down in
the States — perhaps because
of the longer daylight hours.
For unbelievable floral
displays, however, visitors

should schedule an out-of-
town stop at the Butchart
Gardens. Here, 50 acres of
gardens planted in an aban-
doned limestone quarry stun
the senses.

Robert Pim Butchart, a ce-
ment manufacturer, depleted
the limestone on this site. His
wife, faced with a bleak pit,
established the gardens in it
in 1904.
Today, in the Sunken Gar-
den, beds of red and yellow
dahlias and marigolds curve
against deep green conifers
and white-trunked birches.

More formal beds await in the
Rose Garden with its pergola
and the Italian Garden fea-
turing fountains; the serenity
of the Japanese Garden's
bamboo and Japanese maples
are evident from the tea
house located in the center of
a pool. One particularly
favorite area is planted with
people-high sweet peas,
smashing in pinks and
purples and reds.
But the sweetest sight in
Victoria, from a Jewish
perspective, is Congregation
Emanu-El. Built in 1862, it's

The Jewish
community claims
300 member units.

Canada's oldest synagogue
and the oldest surviving
synagogue on North Ameri-
ca's west coast. The red brick
building, 1461 Blanshard St.,
in a Romanesque Revival
style with arched windows,

was dedicated five years after
the first Jews arrived in the
area. They were attracted by
the Fraser River Gold Rush.
The building was "moder-
nized" in 1948 when windows

were covered with stucco. For-
tunately the machers later
restored the building to its
earlier charming self.
Today the Jewish commu-
nity claims 300 "member
units," said Esther Bernstein,
secretary of the synagogue.
Little anti-Semitism exists
and there's a great deal of in-
