WELCOME TO CBIOS
Congregation Beth Israel Ohev Sholem is one of North America's oldest Jewish communities.
CBIOS proudly represents the longest continuity of Jewish presence in Canada since the very first Jewish immigrant settled in Québec City in 1738.
We provide an environment that allows us to maintain and enjoy our Jewish identities and practice our religion regardless of our cultural background and level of observance.
Please get in touch if you would like more information or if you are planning a visit to Quebec City.

"There is a life of tradition that does not merely consist of conservative preservation of the spiritual and cultural possessions of the community. There is such a thing as a treasure hunt within tradition, which creates a living relationship to tradition and to which much of what is best in current Jewish consciousness is indebted even where it was--and is--expressed outside the framework of orthodoxy."
- Gershom Scholem
