Historic Sites of Manitoba: Shaarey Shomayim Synagogue / Shaarey Zedek Synagogue (129 Dagmar Street, Winnipeg)
This two-storey brick structure on Dagmar Street in Winnipeg was designed by brothers Wallace C. Eade and Hugh R. Eade, and built in 1907 by contractors Edward H. Cottrell and McElveny and Company. Known originally as the Shaarey Shomayim Synagogue, it became the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue after the 1913 amalgamation of the two congregations. It was used until the move to a new building on Wellington Crescent in 1950. The building is now used as the Sudanese Canadian Community Centre.
