The Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue of Montreal

This is Canada’s first synagogue. It traces its history back to 1768. In its practices and customs, the synagogue has maintained its Sephardic traditions from the outset. Nevertheless, it serves a diverse community and welcomes families from various backgrounds. The synagogue’s activities focus on fostering the knowledge of our traditions, the study of Torah and the promotion of cultural activities for women and men as well as our youth. Our activities take into account the dynamic of today’s Jewish world.

We are proud to celebrate on May 10, 2018, the 250th Anniversary of our Congregation. Many important events are scheduled during this milestone year, to which we are inviting our Community and friends to participate.

Thanks to our committees and volunteers who work closely with our rabbis and staff, the Congregation is able to provide its members with a rich and varied program of activities.

We invite you to avail yourself of the services of the Congregation and to take part in our community’s life. We look forward to welcoming you in our midst.

Edmond Elbaz, President
