Kehilat She’ar Yashuv (KSY) קהילת שאר ישוב is a Shomer Torah Synagogue based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Our doors are open to all who have the desire to learn how to live a rich and fulfilled life based upon the principles of the written Torah and especially the Ten Commandments. These were written by the Finger of God, handed to Moses at Mount Sinai, and given to Israel to bring to all the nations of the world. We teach the importance of doing true teshuvah, which means “turning back to the Creator”, the God of Israel and having a relationship with Him, rather than converting to a religion. Religions are man-made and tend to divide humanity while the Creator wants us to be united. We want to reclaim our Biblical heritage, the Torah, and to experience the transforming power of God’s Words.
This is especially important in light of all that is happening in the world today. Sadly, religion causes people to turn their backs on the Creator. Our community honors the teachings of Rabbi Yeshua ben Yosef (Yeshua, son of Joseph) who is our greatest teacher, a prophet and messiah of his day. He wanted us to return to the simple message of the Torah so that we could fulfill our calling – to be light to the nations. He told us, “You shall know the Truth (which refers to the Creator) and the Truth (the Creator) shall make you free.” The “Gerim”, the “Strangers among us” have the same rights and responsibilities that we do, i.e., to hear and obey all that the written Torah requires (Numbers 15:15). There is only one Torah and one God for all peoples and in this community, Jews and Gentiles are united under the banner of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. All are welcome here, as it is written, כִּי בֵיתִי, בֵּית-תְּפִלָּה יִקָּרֵא לְכָל-הָעַמִּים “…for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” Isaiah 56:7b.
