History Biographical
In 1953, approximately 25 families had recently moved into the west end suburb of Cote St. Luc. They worked together to achieve their goal: the establishment of a synagogue and Hebrew school. At first, both functions were carried out in the homes of members until 1955, when land was purchased and a small cottage constructed. The Beth Zion Congregation soon outgrew this building, and after using a tent and a school auditorium, a new synagogue was built on Hudson Avenue, and dedicated in 1959. This too was outgrown, and by 1968 another addition was constructed. This large Orthodox synagogue is known for its active congregation, both within the synagogue and the community
