Welcome to Beth Israel Synagogue

Beth Israel, the Family Shul, is a forward-thinking synagogue, committed to Torah and mitzvot, with members from all backgrounds – Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Canadians, Israelis, Americans, Europeans, Africans and Australasians.  Our ‘family’ is passionate about Judaism and we look forward to welcoming you!

Come and see why we are the premier shul in Edmonton for:

  • Israel advocacy – greatest number of participants at CIJA 2013
  • Holocaust memory – our rabbi chairs the Holocaust Monument of Canada council
  • Youth education – over 100 kids at our weekly programs
  • Adult education – over 40 people at our weekly Shiur on the Barbie and hundreds of people at our biannual Shabbatons
  • Women’s Learning – women gather monthly for the young women PomWom group
  • Men’s Learning – multiple chavrusas meet each Thursday night for Mishmor
  • Dynamic Bat-Mitzvah Programming – hosting the international MaTaN project, connecting mothers and daughters as links in the chain of our tradition
  • Women “called” to the Torah – each year, many of our young ladies go off to Israel for a year of post-secondary seminary learning
  • Festival programming – whether it’s Chanukah on Ice or Purim in Persia, we are where the fun begins
  • Daily minyanim – Need to say kaddish?  We have morning and evening minyan 365 days a year

New and Exciting!
