Welcome to our Shul in the Limestone City

Founded as a congregation in 1908 and in its own synagogue since 1910, Beth Israel in historic Kingston, Ontario, Canada, is a vibrant and caring Jewish community.

Our centrally-located Synagogue includes a beautiful sanctuary, two social halls, kosher kitchen, classrooms, a small library and a mikvah. Beth Israel also owns a cemetery and Otterburn House, a heritage building that is home to Hillel House of Queen’s University.

Being located between Toronto and Montreal and just two hours’ drive from Ottawa and Syracuse, New York, Beth Israel welcomes wayfarers throughout the year.

We invite you to use this website as an entrance to the Beth Israel community and we hope you will be inspired to join us in person. Click here for our Services schedule. It is our mission to welcome you and your family.
