Rabbi Langner honored at Beth-El

Wednesday, October 28, Congregation Beth-El in Town of Mont-Royal will honour Rabbi Allan M. Langner for over 50 years of service to the synagogue and the community.

Rabbi Langner, born in Europe and raised in Toronto, moved to Montreal at his late wife’s Nancy Stipleman’s request. Rabbi Langner attended the University of Toronto and received his rabbinic ordination at the Jewish Theological Seminary in NewYork City.

Over the years at Beth-El many historic political figures visited including Pierre Trudeau, John Diefenbaker and Lester Pearson. The rabbi has many stories to tell. He is a recipient of many awards, including the Queen’s Jubilee Medal. Family members attending the gala tribute are Rabbi Langner’s two daughters, Neima, a physician and Gilah, also a rabbi. The synagogue is creating a souvenir program book highlighting special events of past years in which the rabbi was an integral part.
