Co-President’s Message

Kehillat Beth Israel is the unification of two proud and vibrant synagogues. As co-Presidents, it has been our great pleasure and honour to watch and help as Agudath Israel Congregation and Congregation Beth Shalom went from talking about coming together, through the discussion phases and then the joining as one. Our co-operation, as symbolized by the fact that Kehillat Beth Israel has co-Presidents, is exceptional. Our amalgamation success is noted and admired by many congregations in the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ). Now that we are one of USCJ’s largest congregations in North America, Kehillat Beth Israel has a responsibility of leadership in the Conservative Jewish world, particularly in the transformation of Conservative Judaism, injecting vibrancy and ensuring its relevancy to current and future generations.

That is why Beth Israel is leading by example as an egalitarian and fully inclusive kehillah always respectful of the diversity of our members, both young and old

Kehillat Beth Israel is more than a synagogue. We are a centre of Conservative Jewish life practising and delivering a blend of progressive and traditional Judaism. We urge everyone to come and join for minyan, Shabbat services and our excellent programming throughout the week. There’s always
something happening and everyone is welcome!
