Joint Minyan with SZBE & Shaare Zedek


SZBE and Shaare Zedek continue to join together for weekday services, Sunday morning through Friday morning. Friday evening and Shabbat morning services will continue to be held at our respective synagogues.
Weekday morning minyan is at 7:30 am, Sunday at 8:45am, and evening services at 6pm. The location will shift between the two synagogues and will be indicated in the service times each week.

A few additional notes:

  • Breakfast will be served daily regardless of the venue.
  • Daily yahrzeits and cholim lists of both synagogues will be used and acknowledged at all services.
  • Congregants from the visiting synagogue will be included in aliyot and the conducting of services. Shaare Zedek’s policies on women counting for a minyan, having aliyot, and leading services are now the same as ours.
  • Weekday Zoom will still be offered

We cannot let the idea that we have a joint minyan make us complacent – we each still need to do what we can to make sure we have a minyan so people saying kaddish are able to honor their departed loved ones. If you regularly come on a particular day of the week, please continue to come, regardless of where the minyan is taking place.

A Return to the Rhona & Irwin Kramer Family Chapel

Wednesday, November 2, 2022, will be a day to remember and an occasion to enter in the history books of  Shaare Zion Beth-El Congregation.

After more than 2 and ½ years of non-use, the Daily Minyannaires held services in the Chapel for the first time since March 2020. Close to 20 members participated in this memorable occasion and Mark Rabinovitch had the honour of leading the Shacharit services. A special breakfast sponsored by Riva & Andrew Toeman followed. The Daily Chapel was refurbished  and rededicated in 2015 with the generosity of Rhona & Irwin Kramer, long time members and supporters of the shul. We have added two new air filters which will ensure the circulation and quality of fresh air at all times. We welcome everyone to return.

Join us in a Prayer for Peace
