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.

The Masorti Movement in Israel is a pluralistic, religious movement in Israel affiliated with Masorti/ Conservative Judaism around the world. The Canadian Foundation for Masorti Judaism supports the work of the Masorti Movement in Israel which promotes scholarship, Zionism and religious tolerance and pluralism within the context of modern Israeli society.

Masorti Judaism is guided by halakhah, combining Jewish law and tradition with an open approach to scholarship, Jewish life, Zionism, and the ideals and values of each new generation.
