Located in the heart of the McGill Student Ghetto, the Shul acts as the magnetic core of the downtown Jewish community. This student-run initiative draws both students and young professionals together to celebrate and engage their Judaism in a welcoming environment.
At any given moment something is happening at the Ghetto Shul. We host prayer services and meals every Shabbat and holiday, regular Jewish learning, and a diverse array of programming (including Sustainable Shabbat meals, holiday celebrations, Freshman orientation, field trips, and volunteer opportunities). We are a warm and Torah-based community, which provides a spiritual home for an eclectic mix of Jews. Be it a giant Friday night dinner, a lively Thursday night class, a Monday night jam session, or a social action fundraiser, anyone can experience the warmth of Jewish life.
On this WordPress site, you can learn more about the shul and its various activities.
If you are in Downtown Montreal and need a place to Eat/Sleep for Shabbat or the weekday, please feel free to contact us and we will find a place for you!
