Welcome to Masorti Canada - Mercaz Canada

Welcome to Masorti-Canada ~ MERCAZ-Canada, the Canadian home of Masorti/Conservative Judaism in Israel.

Masorti Judaism is Israel's fastest growing religious movement. We are a traditional, yet pluralistic religious movement affiliated with Masorti/Conservative Judaism around the world. We recognize that there's more to being Jewish in Israel than residency, more than the historic choice of ultra-Orthodoxy or secular life.

The foundations of Masorti/Conservative Judaism include:

  • A commitment to halakhah balanced with an open approach to scholarship, Jewish life, Zionism, and the ideals and values of each generation.
  • The unity of the Jewish people, with its ancestral bond to our historic homeland.
  • Promoting the values of Conservative Judaism: interpreting halakhah through the lens of inclusion and modern values.
  • Mutual respect for the many streams within Judaism
  • Ensuring the distinctiveness of the Jewish people through Jewish and Hebrew education and fostering spiritual and cultural values.

MERCAZ-Canada and Canadian Foundation for Masorti Judaism work in cooperation to foster and strengthen Masorti/Conservative Judaism in Israel, based on the ideals of tradition and tolerance, study and spirituality, and social action and love of Israel.
