Rabbi’s Message

Welcome to The Chevra website and allow me to introduce you to the beauty of our shul community. The Chevra is one the most established and prestigious synagogues in the city of Montreal, known for its breath-taking sanctuary and magnificent simcha halls. It is the people that make this congregation what it is. There is so much that highlights the generosity and spirit of our membership. We are a warm and welcoming congregation that supports each other in times of crisis and rejoice together at simchas.

At The Chevra, there is a constant push toward spiritual development, bringing alive the values and principles of our heritage through creating an active community that is engaged in Torah study, prayer, acts of kindness and a love for the people of Israel.

I invite you to be part of the Chevra community in every way that moves you. It’ is a very special place that will give you many opportunities to connect and provide you with exciting possibilities for deepening your knowledge of and love for things Jewish. Here, on our website, I hope you will learn more about what makes The Chevra unique, and that it will move you to visit us in-person so we can host you at a service or event.

My wife, Lieba, our children Mendel, Riki, Yakov and Yehudit look forward to meeting you soon. If you are at our synagogue service or a guest at an event, please make a point to introduce yourself.
Be shalom.

Rabbi Asher Jacobson
