We are a congregation that supports a wide range of programs and activities for members of all ages.

We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, a Jew by birth or by choice.

What makes Shaarei-Beth El
Congregation so special?

“Shaarei-Beth El is a Reform Jewish congregation dedicated to the teachings of Torah and the principles of Judaism serving the community of Halton.”

Our Vision is “To be the vibrant centre of Jewish life in Halton Region”.

We are a welcoming Reform synagogue with a sense of tradition and a spirit of openness and acceptance. From 1982 when our two congregations in Burlington and Oakville merged, we have always been here to serve the unique and individualized needs of this community. Families of varying backgrounds, including Interfaith families and LGBT families, are welcome to lifestyles and communities are welcome to share in our synagogue activities, the center of Jewish experience in the Halton region.

Located in beautiful downtown Oakville, steps from Lakeshore Road, we are a congregation that fills a broad range of spiritual, educational and social interests. A small congregation with a big heart, we at Shaarei-Beth El have the ability to connect to each one of our members in a special way. We have a proud past and look forward to a bright future together.

We’re here for you.
