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.
