Mark Merson

I became president of Shaare Zedek at one of the most difficult times in its history; following a global pandemic and at a point where the affiliation with Conservative synagogues in Montreal and throughout North America is dwindling. My goal, along with Rabbi Bright, Cantor Boaz and Hazzan Sheini Ariel, is to ensure that Shaare Zedek Congregation remains relevant in the lives of Jews in our community.

Being part of Shaare Zedek allows you to be part of a larger community. Being part of Shaare Zedek means promoting values and traditions that you hold dear. Being part of the Shaare Zedek family teaches future generations that being a Jew matters. Being part of Shaare Zedek means that there will always be High Holy Day services for you and the community. Being part of Shaare Zedek means even if your participation ebbs, there is always room for you - you can always come home. It is important to support your Shaare Zedek family, to support your faith, and to support your community.

My wife, Bonnie, and I wish you a sweet and healthy year filled with blessings of peace, love and laughter. L’Shana Tovah!
