Baila Lazarus

Baila Lazarus is a Vancouver editor, writer, photographer and illustrator. She has travelled through 30 countries in North and South America, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

Among her favourites have been Laos, China and Guyana. Turkey was the only place in the world where she got food sickness. Otherwise, she has an iron stomach.

Baila specializes in Jewish-themed areas of interest, especially finding synagogues or other Jewish icons in remote locations. In British Columbia, she has covered dozens of destinations for weekend getaways, including Tofino, Ucluelet, Sooke, 100 Mile House and the Sunshine Coast.

She is as comfortable trekking through jungle in Indonesia as she is testing new techniques in spas around B.C. (tough life). Her articles, photographs and watercolour illustrations have been published in newspapers across North America.

Baila is also a media engagement specialist. She teaches courses at Small Business BC, provides full-day seminars and offers media consulting packages  in Vancouver.

The only synagogue in Indonesia – Shaar Hashamayim Synagogue in Minahasa, Sulawesi Island. It took an hour of driving around to find but it was worth it. Paid for by Christians, it exists in a Christian region of Indonesia. The Israel Museum in Jerusalem is interested in reproducing it when the rabbi moves to Israel.

 

 

Taman Laut Bunaken is a marine park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. It was one of Indonesia’s first marine parks. It was established in 1991 and has a still growing popularity because of its high biodiversity, clear waters and wall diving. It’s a perfect place for beginner snorklers as it’s only five feet deep. It’s like swimming in an aquarium.

    […] Baila Lazarus took a trip to Vancouver Island in June to check out the newly renovated Villa Ayrie. Formerly the Relais & Chteâux hotel Aerie, the site was bought by the GAIN Automotive Group, which uses it to provide accommodations for those attending their auto circuit activities on the Island.
