Rabbi Dr. Charles Grysman


Rabbi Dr. Charles Grysman is the spiritual leader of the Zichron Yisroel Congregation and an educational consultant.  He also has a private practice in counseling and therapy. 

Welcome to Zichron Yisroel Congregation

We are a small, warm and friendly Orthodox synagogue located in beautiful Thornhill, Ontario. We began in 1995 with a very clear objective and that has not changed: “to make all Jews feel welcome regardless of background, level of observance, knowledge, age or socioeconomic circumstances.” This is particularly important since the orthodox community has undergone a polarization in recent years, resulting in a feeling of exclusion among traditional and perhaps non-practicing Jews. Towards this end, Zichron Yisroel makes all members feel a vibrant and equal part of a halachic community which can serve them and their children.
