KOL NIDRE APPEAL

Although it has been a challenge, our synagogue has resiliently met congregants’ needs throughout the pandemic.  Services and learning activities were adapted to reach as many people as possible.  Life-cycle events were marked as best they could be. The shul has been kept running.  Calls have been made to members of our community, many of whom are housebound.  Flowers and honey cakes have been distributed to brighten our holidays.  Our dedicated clergy, staff, and volunteers have supported our community in these and other ways, and we heartily thank them for it.

In addition, our two synagogues took a momentous step and amalgamated to form Shaare Zion Beth-El (SZBE) Congregation. By doing so, we have strengthened Conservative Judaism in Montreal and hopefully have assured its sustainability long into the future.

Our merger does provide some security, but our congregation has been badly bruised by recent events.  If SZBE is to flourish, it needs to be rooted in a strong community, which we have the responsibility for sustaining.  To this end, we urge you to engage with your synagogue.  If for no other reason, do it for the personal benefits you will accrue: the sense of peace brought by Shabbat, the satisfaction of contributing to the chain of Jewish life in Montreal, the comfort of community, and more. 

Maintaining an institution also takes financial resources, but we are unfortunately facing shortfall in revenue at the same time as we are facing the need for on-going and catch-up maintenance for our 80-year-old building.  We know you are committed to SZBE, to our community, and to preserving this wonderful institution for future generations.   Therefore, please generously contribute to our Kol Nidre appeal to ensure we can continue to meet the needs of our current members and can preserve SZBE for future generations. 

Thank you for supporting SZBE.
