Representing Vibrant Jewish Communities in Canada

The Canadian Council for Reform Judaism and the URJ Canada Steering Committee represent 27 Reform Congregations from Montreal to Vancouver with over 30,000 affiliated members. Our temples provide a welcoming, inclusive and egalitarian worship environment that encourages life-long learning, tikkun olam and a sense of community. In addition to our communal worship, our vibrant educational programs for youth and adults alike inspire us to uphold our Jewish values and traditions.

This year, let’s celebrate Canada Day by embracing diversity and difference, reaffirming our duty to care for each other, and taking the necessary steps to ensure our synagogues, community centers, camps, religious schools, parks, libraries, and other public places reflect hospitality and lovingkindness.

Study of Jews in Canada

The 2018 Survey of Canadian Jews was the first nationwide survey of the Canadian Jewish population. The single most important finding of the 2018 Survey of Canadian Jews is that we are doing an unusually good job of keeping the community cohesive. 

Heeding the Call to Social Justice in Canada

In Canada, many of our social justice initiatives focus on advocating for the Aboriginal community. In fact, many Canadian synagogues have adopted the Indigenous Land Acknowledgement, paralleling this week's Torah portion, which acknowledges the history of the Promised Land and those who came before us.

Narratives of Jews and Indigenous people differ greatly. But both groups have suffered unspeakable hardships and must hold this past close while finding a path forward.
