You are right. It was a school, not a synagogue. That school is Talmud Torah (St. Laurent) Elementary School, in Montreal. The library was fire bombed by a Lebanese Montrealer who threw a firebomb though the school window and all the books were destroyed as well as much of the library. Russell Crowe donated money to help rebuild the llibrary. We will always remember his great act of kindness.
