The Kingston Jewish Council Site

We are located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada!

We invite you to browse our site to learn more about what we do and the Kingston Jewish Community

The Kingston Jewish Council is passionate about Kingston. It is our mission to strengthen and enrich our city by supporting our vibrant Jewish community. We provide community-wide programs and exciting events that add flavour to local Jewish life. By uniting together, we are ensuring that Jewish life in Kingston thrives. The Kingston Jewish Council (formerly the Jewish Community Council of Kingston) is a secular umbrella organization that furthers the welfare and security of the Jewish community, facilitates philanthropic, social, cultural and educational activities, fosters co-operation within the Jewish community of Kingston, and speaks for the Kingston Jewish community on secular matters.

Message from the Co-Presidents of Kingston Jewish Council (KJC)

Welcome to the Kingston Jewish Council Website. Our goal is to provide Jewish cultural and community events outside of ritual life. Irrespective of your affiliation (Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, secular, etc.) we host events that bring the community together. We want the community to grow and thrive and provide a comfortable Jewish environment. We do this by hosting programs that meet the need of our diverse community, whether it is celebrating Chanukah together at our annual Light Up The Night program or having speakers that address health issues which are important to our community.  We also have a variety of committees responsible for programming based on member interests. Some of these interests include multicultural community outreach and volunteering.

KJC will be working closely with other local and outside organizations to combat any negative anti-Semitic activities and messages being disseminated locally.

We envision our community to be the centre of Jewish Activity between Toronto, Ottawa & Montreal.
