Celebrating a World of Sephardic Tradition and Culture
Located in Vancouver BC, Beth Hamidrash is Canada’s only Sephardic congregation west of Toronto and is famed for its warmth and inclusiveness. Our diverse roots create a unique centre for exciting educational, cultural, and religious experiences for people of all ages.
“A place of learning and communal growth.”
Beth Hamidrash literally means “a house of study” which captures who we are as a congregation. Our synagogue is a place to gather daily for inspiring tefilot, learning and communal growth, which deepens our spiritual connection through Torah.
