Our City

Jewish Life in Hamilton


Families would be hard-pressed to find a more dynamic, diverse, vibrant and welcoming Jewish community than Hamilton. What defines us is not a single Torah outlook or lifestyle but rather our warm, open, friendly, welcoming spirit.

What amazes most visitors is how a community as diverse as ours can be so unified. Our congregation comprises people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of observance – some with roots in Hamilton that go back generations, and others who’ve just recently arrived.

Walking through our Shul you will experience a thriving congregation with children and university students, young families and seniors, all growing together as an organic Jewish community. While enjoing the ambiance you might hear Hebrew, French, Yiddish, or Russian.

Hamilton offers everything your family needs to live a committed Jewish life with three daily Minyanim, a state-of-the-art Mikvah, and a wide variety of learning programs for children and adults alike.

Our historic day school has educated over three generations of Jewish students and our daily shuttle transports highschool students to a variety of schools in Toronto to continue their full time Jewish education.

With a variety of kosher shopping and dining options, and numerous community events at our Shul, the JCC, and other venues, Hamilton Jewish life is pulsating, vibrant, and meaningful.

The uniqueness of our community can only be appreciated by experiencing it first-hand. Please join us for a memorable Shabbat and learn what makes our community so special. RSVP at myplace@adasisrael.ca
