About Us

Our synagogue, the Chevra is home to one of the most prominent communities in Montreal with 600+ families. For our members and guests, it is a welcoming place to pray, celebrate, learn, and connect with others. Our beautiful facility gives members the opportunity to celebrate their simchas in the most sought-after venue in Montreal for weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and baby naming.

Though synagogue’s activity happens mostly on Shabbat, there is something exciting and meaningful happening on every day of the week: Social Center, Torah classes, Chevra Chesed (CCC) projects, sisterhood programs, virtual programs, as well as private and holiday celebrations.

The uniqueness and beauty of The Chevra is that we combine the grandeur of an established synagogue with the welcoming warmth of a shteebel community. We are looking forward to welcoming you!



Every couple is unique, which is why The Chevra offers tailored wedding packages to meet a complete range of special requests for your wedding day.

Our beautiful newly renovated sanctuary is surrounded by 18 stained glass windows that tower 25 feet high as a sign of life and light, coupled with our unique automated retractable wall, allows for a one-of-a-kind bridal entrance.

Our majestic ballroom is the largest in Montreal and it is brimming with elegance. This 7000 square foot hall that stands at a soaring height of 25-feet is designed with Juliet balconies and mirrored doubled French doors throughout.

Ambience and lighting are everything our Ballroom is equipped with our built-in motorized lightshow and pin lighting. It is sure to give your reception a royal touch.

Our clergy will elevate and enhance your simcha with meaning and spirituality to help make it a most memorable experience.

Chevra Fundraising Campaign

Dear Chevra members and supporters,

It has been a most difficult 21 months for many of us. At The Chevra we have been working tirelessly, not only to stay afloat, but to be there for our community in ways we have never been before. Our operating budget has suffered due to the cancellation of all events and decreased revenues over the high holidays for the past 2 years. Our annual galas, golf tournaments and fundraisers have all been suspended, while reoccurring upkeep and facility maintenance expenses went on. All the while, our beloved synagogue continued to dispense funds and supplies to help the most vulnerable in our community.

In February 2022 the Chevra will launch a $1.5 million campaign to reinvigorate our position in the community and continue to be the beacon of light for so many. We turn to you, our members and supporters, to help us achieve this goal.

We are deeply thankful to our dear and long-time members Franki and Peter Yanofsky for kick starting this campaign with a $250,000 donation, honoring the beloved memory of Lawrence Yanofsky Z"L.

Please consider this heartfelt request that comes at such an extraordinary time in our lives.

Together we can secure the heart of our community- our beloved Chevra.

Keep our light shining.



Daniel Miller & Leo Huberman Co -Presidents


The Chevra has been the chosen venue for families to celebrate their most special life cycle events.
