“The Shaarey Zedek is not just a building, it is one of the pillars of the Jewish Community in Winnipeg and beyond. It is a home to all, because It is a place where the mind and the soul meet and where people go to feel part of a larger essence. At ground level, it has transformed into a major educational and social institution while maintaining its religious mandate. It is now time to bring the building itself up to the physical standards of today’s world. I am proud to be part of this incredible, timeless institution.”
“I appreciate the shul’s progressive approach to creating a modern, sustainable venue to facilitate celebrations, lifecycle events and worship for future generations.”

“Returning to Winnipeg three years ago with our young family, Shaarey Zedek’s warm welcome included encouraging us to enjoy family Shabbat services, Judaic and Hebrew courses, and superb kosher take-out. Receiving fantastic support from the staff including introductions to the larger Jewish community and Gray Academy, we feel we’ve returned home. The Shaarey Zedek has been and will continue to be a big part of that."

“Congregation Shaarey Zedek has been a central part of Jewish life in Winnipeg for many decades. Education, support of Jewish families through their life cycle events, center of Jewish ritual and leadership regarding the many challenges affecting our Jewish and broader communities are the contributions Shaarey Zedek Synagogue has provided over its history. We need a renewal of our physical infrastructure to continue to provide a relevant, supportive environment for the important roles we play to support Jewish life in Winnipeg. Join me in supporting Jewish life in Winnipeg.”

“I have always felt a deep connection to the synagogue and want to see it thrive, as it is a very important part of my Jewish identity. From my baby naming ceremony, to my bat mitzvah and countless other celebrations along the way, I have been privileged to be a part of this community and it is important to me that it provides an inclusive environment for the celebration of Jewish life for many generations to come. I’m beyond thankful for the Shaarey Zedek clergy, staff, leaders and congregants that have been there for my family for over 20 years, and I hope we can all be a part of the next phase of our synagogue, and the future of Shaarey Zedek.”
“I am a fourth-generation Shaarey Zedek member; the synagogue has been an important part of my family for over 100 years. My brothers and I wanted to honour our family history by contributing to the Capital Campaign, helping Shaarey Zedek to continue to be a major centre of Winnipeg Jewish life for many generations to come.”

“I support this Campaign to revitalize the Shaarey Zedek Synagogue because I believe that a strong central landmark is key to having a strong Jewish community for the future of Winnipeg. This is more than just a building, it will be a beautiful venue for simchas, a place to engage the next generation and a home for those who need a sense of community.”
"Since 1889, Congregation Shaarey Zedek Synagogue has welcomed generations of Winnipeg Jewish families. We are thrilled to be able to contribute to the L’Dor Va Dor campaign, so that our children and future generations will be able to enjoy the synagogue and all it has to offer."
