Located to the east of Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster each have a rich Jewish history.


Directly east of Vancouver, Burnaby has a growing number of Jewish families. Connect Me In leads many programs in the area, including a bi-weekly Hebrew School, holiday parties, and adult study groups, as well as working together with established organizations such as the Burquest (Burnaby, Coquitlam, New Westminster) Jewish Community Association. 


The oldest city in Metro Vancouver and the former capital of the province, New Westminster is the geographic epicentre of the region. With excellent public transit and access to Vancouver, it has also become an appealing location for Jewish families. 


Vancouver’s Beth Israel congregation has a cemetery located in northern Burnaby.

Past Program Highlights

  • Adult Study Groups - Ongoing

    Each session in the series of events is led by a different rabbi, offering participants a variety of perspectives. The open and welcoming environment makes this a great opportunity to ask questions and expand your knowledge in a small group setting.

  • Community Celebration

    The Outdoor Community Celebration, organized in partnership with the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver, drew more than 100 community members to enjoy a sunny summer day at Pier Park in New Westminster, with live musical performances, dancing, family activities, food and more.
