As President of Zichron Yisroel Congregation , I welcome you and your family to our community. It is an honour for me to represent our Kehilla.

We’re an Orthodox congregation that welcomes Jews of all backgrounds and levels of observance. We bring the joy of our rich Jewish heritage to life. We celebrate our differences and similarities and thrive in an environment of warmth and support. Our children’s programs are vibrant, educational and fun.

Since we joined Zichron Yisroel, the kehilla has become a spiritual home to our family. I personally welcome you to make it yours too.

If you’re in Thornhill, please join us for weekday, Shabbat and holiday services. Our religious leader, Rabbi Dr. Charles Grysman, is sure to inspire you.

Important Notice:

We are grateful to everyone who contributes to our sense of community and Shabbat simcha by sponsoring a Kiddush. When you sponsor a kiddush, you are sponsoring even more than the food we enjoy. In essence, you are sponsoring Shabbat morning in the shul!

Request descriptions of the Kiddush packages by sending an email to
