Integration Into
Community

One of the greatest assets of the Montreal Jewish Conversion Program of the Jewish Community Council of Montreal is its program to assist candidates with their integration into the Jewish community. This program, which is handled with both guidance and a conscious allowance of independence, is meant to help each individual find a home in the community that suits them best. Once comfortable, individuals discover families with whom they feel particularly at ease and these families, many of whom have worked with the Geirut program in the past, become their sponsoring families. The candidates are also encouraged to develop a relationship with one specific rabbi who will be considered their sponsoring rabbi. Both the sponsoring rabbi and the sponsoring family are in communication with the Beis Din to make certain that each individual is progressing in their journey toward Judaism.

Through their interactions with the larger community, the candidates are not only exposed to the dynamics of Jewish life as it is actually lived, but they become familiar with the resources necessary for Jewish living such as shopping (groceries, clothing, bookstores), community assistance organizations, libraries, a tour of a mikvah, and much more.
