Welcome to Masorti in 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.
