Hello!

The Saint John Jewish community was formed with the arrival of three waves of immigration spread out over almost a century, creating a community of more than 250 families.

In the 1960s, the community began to decline as the grandchildren of the immigrants moved to larger Canadian and American cities for educational and employment opportunities.

Today there are roughly sixty Israeli Jewish families and approximately 30 Canadian Jewish families in Saint John. The Synagogue in the city is used as a gathering place for Jewish families.

There are weekly services on Friday night, as well as holidays and events (Bat/Bar Mitzva) celebrations. The Synagogue is located uptown. Sharing the same building with Saint John Jewish Historical Museum.

our volunteers

Volunteering is a fundamental act of good citizenship. It’s also essential in our community. Our congregation is built on a solid foundation of volunteers who give of themselves in time and in effort. Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, help others, and contribute to the strength of the Shaarei Zedek community. Volunteers lead activities and efforts in everything from education to religious practices, from social action to social celebrations, from welcoming new members to supporting members in times of illness and sorrow.

There are so many opportunities to volunteer and we invite all members to become involved in the community.
