Religious Services

Kingston is one of the oldest small Jewish communities in Ontario. Jews began arriving there in the early 1840s, when - for a few years - the city was the capital of the United Province of Canada. Kingston has two functioning kehillot; Beth Israel (Conservative) and Iyr HaMelech (Reform) and many students attend Shabbat services at Beth Israel due to it's proximity to campus. Chabad Kingston offers regular services in the Lubavitch Orthodox style catered primarily to students. All Kingston's congregations offer free seats at High Holiday services.

Frequency: Friday and Saturday
