Beth Torah Congregation is a Conservative synagogue located on 47 Glenbrook Avenue, North York, Toronto. The current Rabbi is Rabbi Yossi Sapirman and the current Cantor is David Young. The current President of the synagogue is Allen Gerskup.
The synagogue has recently gone under a "Completing the Dream" campaign to add a large renovation to the shule.
Beth Torah was founded by Holocaust survivors in 1962 after the neighboring families of Rabbi Shoichet wanted a more Conservative place to conduct services. The 3.5 acre land at 47 Glenbrook avenue was sold for $85, 000. Afterwards, Morris Turk bought 1 acre of land to build houses and the congregation was left with 2.5 acres.
Completing the Dream Campaign
In 2010, the synagogue started a campaign to enlarge it. The shul received many donations from their members and they most notably added a chapel, a new sanctuary and a new social hall.
