About Us

Shaare Zion Congregation has played a major role in the Montreal Jewish Community since 1924. We have become a home to our congregants, a welcoming stop to visitors and a voice of authority within the community.

Celebrating over 85 years, Shaare Zion Congregation is proud to provide Jewish Montrealers of all ages with opportunities for enlightenment, ritual, prayer and celebration. For the young we offer youth groups, Bnai Mitzvah programmes and family events. Our Men’s Club and Sisterhood create opportunities for strong relationships, while our Adult Education classes provide intellectual stimulation and curiosity. And to the bereaved, the camaraderie and fellowship of the Daily Minyan is of comfort during the mourning process.

We have opened our doors to every Jew to step inside. Religious or secular, rich or poor, or, simply, spiritually hungry.

Rabbi Lionel Moses, Cantor Adam Stotland, Ritual Director Asher Tannenbaum and the Shaare Zion Congregation Choir under the direction of Shimon Radu look forward to welcoming you too.
