Montreal police seized a large quantity of alcohol from an Outremont synagogue on Wednesday.That old time religion is good enough for me.
Officers say they’ve been warning the synagogue for years to stop buying alcohol in bulk from Ontario.
The alcohol, which is much cheaper in Ontario, is served at religious ceremonies.
Police confiscated over 900 litres of alcohol, including Kosher wine.According to Vos iz Neias, it was a Skverer shul.
According to Quebec law, such large amounts must be purchased from the SAQ. [See here.]
No charges have been laid so far and the synagogue says it will fight the law if any arrests are made.
