Welcome to Congregation Dorshei Emet

A Transformational Community Rooted in Tradition and Celebrating Diversity

Home to cultural Jews and spiritual seekers, Dorshei Emet is an egalitarian, progressive community where Jewish traditions are celebrated and innovation is welcomed. An open community where everyone is welcomed regardless of religious background, sexual orientation, gender identity, and socio-economic status. We welcome interfaith couples, and celebrate the individual stories of our members. We promote Jewish life through creative approaches to spirituality, ethics and culture.

All of our programs and services are open to the entire community, and if you like what you see, we also invite you to join!

To ensure everyone’s safety and offer the most comfortable atmosphere possible, the following protocols will be in place for those who attend services in person:

•             Proof of vaccination is required at the door to enter, either the Quebec government app, or a printed copy of your QR code.  If you forget this proof you will be turned away without exception.

•             Masks must be worn at all times, except for those who are alone on the bimah.  Singing while masked is allowed (and encouraged!).

•             To ensure proper distancing, the ushers will seat each household as they arrive. Please don't change seats.

•             Tallits and kippot will not be offered for hygiene reasons.  Please bring your own.

•             At the end of services, we will be dismissed by row to specific exits. Please don't linger in groups inside the building.

•             Please do not attend if you are feeling at all unwell or have any possible symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, new cough, loss of sense of smell etc..)

Please be respectful to our ushers and parnassim and follow their instructions. This year's circumstances are placing an extra burden on our volunteers. We also ask for a little extra patience if arriving and leaving take a bit more time than usual.

In-Person Services Are Back!

After a very long year and a half, we are looking forward to the opportunity to gather together in person for Saturday morning Shabbat services this summer! We hope that this will be a meaningful opportunity to celebrate Shabbat, while still following all of the health protocols and regulations and ensuring the health and safety of everyone who participates. With this in mind, we invite all Dorshei Emet members who are fully vaccinated to read the following guidelines and register for services. Everyone must pre-register to attend services.

You can read the guidelines for attending services here.

Click here to register to attend the services.

For those who are unable to attend in-person services, we will continue to stream via Zoom. As usual, the link will go out Friday morning.
