Val-Morin, Quebec, Canada - Belz Hasidic Community Lose Last Court Battle over Zoning Laws at Summer Camp

Val-Morin, Quebec, Canada - A Jewish community has taken a Laurentian village to the Supreme Court of Canada to fight town zoning bylaws that would force the community to stop using two of its cottages for a synagogue and school. The buildings that house the Hasidic congregation's place of worship and the school in Val-Morin, Que., are about 90 kilometres northwest of Montreal, and are on land currently zoned for residential use.
