Come and learn about the fast-paced life of Jacques La Salle - a man who successfully bridged both Quebec and Israeli societies. His autobiography "A Life in Four Acts" tells the amazing story of a francophone Montrealer who took it upon himself to learn about the struggle for Jewish rights.   Jacques is the only French Canadian to volunteer in Israel before the Six Day War and in 1973, he spent the Yom Kippur War in Israel and joined a kibbutz.  Upon his return to Canada, he became Chief of Staff for Herbert Marx, Quebec's Minister of Justice from 1985 to 1988.  Here is your opportunity to meet this extraordinary Montrealer in person and learn from his experiences.  Free admission.  Copies of his book will be available for sale and signing.
