Together we strive to uphold a community environment for our members and their loved ones 365 days a year. Through every life cycle event, holiday or the craving for Jewish learning and prayer, your clergy and staff are ready and available.  For 96 years, Shaare Zion has been there for our community. We pride ourselves on our welcoming environment and our ability to provide care, religious and otherwise to the extended Montreal Jewish community. 
We’re asking you to join together in supporting Shaare Zion with  your Kol Nidre donation to ensure our service to your Jewish lives and families thrives for the next 96 and beyond.
If you have already made your donation, please accept our special thanks for your generosity and commitment.




As the world is on fire over the darkness of racial injustice across North America, how are we meant to respond as Jews? The prophetic tradition, following Isaiah 49:6 is a clarion call: "Be a light unto the nations!" Not only do we follow the prophetic path of Isaiah but we also walk in the footsteps of Rabbi Abraham Joshuah Heschel who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma. As we read Isaiah’s prophecy (58: 1-12) in our haftarah this Yom Kippur, let us all be inspired by the stories of a few wonderful living guides to provide moral guidance for us as Jews in relation to the entire world and reconsider the role Judaism demands of us as allies in the struggle for freedom and justice across religious and racial divides.
