History Biographical
The Shearith Israel Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue was founded in 1768 in Montreal by, among others, Simon Levy and Aaron Hart. Prominent members have included the families Joseph, Hays, David, Solomon and Wolff. As many of the original members (from England, Germany, and the American colonies) were descended from Spanish and Portuguese Jews, the Orthodox synagogue followed the Sepharadi customs. It was modelled on similar synagogues in London and New York. At first, a building was rented, and then a new one erected on Notre Dame in 1778. After several moves and buildings, the edifice at the present location on Lemieux Street was constructed in 1947. The famed Reverend Abraham de Sola and his son Meldola de Sola were rabbis of the synagogue in the 1800s. Members of the congregation founded the Young Men's Hebrew Benevolent Society of Montreal (later the Baron de Hirsch Institute) in the 1850s. The synagogue has a cemetery and a school and was the recipient of the first two Torah scrolls ever sent to Canada. Some of its Torah cases are over 200 years old as well. The Shearith Israel is the oldest congregation in Canada.
