We would be pleased to welcome you as a member of our Community. We are a small Congregation that will offer a warm and rewarding experience. Congregation Agudas Israel is a progressive, egalitarian synagogue affiliated with the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism.
Religious services are held on Friday night and Shabbat morning. We observe all the Holy Days and Festivals. Every attempt is made to enrich the spiritual and cultural Jewish life of our members. We offer adult education classes, Jewish cooking classes, Israeli movie showings, and a wide variety of other activities. We annually welcome guest lecturers, public speakers and musical ensembles. Our Hebrew School is for children from Kindergarten to Bar and Bat Mitzvah. Classes are held from September through May on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00 p.m.
We produce our Bulletin that is a Gold Medal Solomon Schecter winner. This newsletter publishes every two months. It is mailed to our membership and can be seen on line. It is an informative, interesting and creative piece that both keeps our membership current and provides thoughtful commentary from a number of members and contributors.
Among a wealth of other programs and events, Congregation Agudas Israel boasts a Solomon Schecter Gold Medal for our Holocaust program. Each year, more than two thousand students from Saskatchewan come to hear a survivor tell his or her story. We also host a memorial service that is open to the entire city of Saskatoon.
Each member of our congregation supports the activities of our synagogue in accordance with his or her ability to pay; dues are based upon the individual family’s gross income.
We welcome all Jews as members of our synagogue regardless of ability to pay.
In cases of hardship, adjustments can be arranged to reduce membership costs.
All communication regarding dues is strictly confidential.
