History Biographical
The Beth Aaron Congregation was founded after World War II in Park Extension. Originally known as the Jewish Community Association of Park Extension, the name was changed to Beth Aaron in 1952 with the opening of the new synagogue building. Rented space had been used previously. The synagogue was chartered in 1954, grew in membership, and ran an afternoon school. Shifting populations and emigration caused the Beth Aaron to merge with the Beth Israel of Cote St. Luc in 1986 and sell its own building. The Beth Israel Congregation was founded in 1965 as an offshoot of the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol Tifreth Israel. After meeting in a variety of locations in Cote St. Luc, the Jewish Conservative Congregation became the Beth Israel in 1967. Their first synagogue was in an apartment on Kildare, which was used until the building on Mackle, built on land purchased in 1966, was completed in 1971. A new addition was added in 1986 when the synagogue merged with the Beth Aaron to become the Beth Israel Beth Aaron Congregation, the third major Orthodox synagogue in the community.
