There are pivotal moments in the history of organizations that dramatically alter their destination, and Shaare Zedek Congregation is no exception. Ours occurred in September of 2001, when, after an exhaustive rabbinical search, we were fortunate to engage Rabbi Alan W. Bright as our spiritual leader.

Rabbi Bright brings with him an intellect and a philosophy of inclusiveness that have allowed us to welcome and embrace individuals from all aspects of our community and reach out to many who have found their home in our Synagogue.  While some may be attracted by the eloquence and compassion he exhibits at Life cycle events, for us at Shaare Zedek, it is the concern and commitment he has for our entire synagogue family.

Our Rabbi has also made a substantial contribution to the broader community including, but certainly not limited to, his leadership roles with March of the Living and the Board of Rabbi's, and his bridge building with other cultural groups.

The relationships he establishes play an important role towards ensuring that Shaare Zedek Congregation maintains a vibrant and viable presence in the Montreal Jewish Community.
