The OJCA is a Synagogue (Beth Shalom Synagogue) and Community Centre (OJCC) located in the heart of the Okanagan Valley in kelowna, British Columbia. With a diverse membership consisting of Jews with Orthodox, Conservative and Reform backgrounds, the Okanagan Jewish community has

styled itself to conduct its services and celebrate holidays in an all inclusive fashion. As a result of the strength which this diversity brings, the OJCA has evolved to be a progressive Jewish community with a growing and enthusiastic membership. As well, the OJCA has historically maintained an active involvement and a strong presence in the mainstream of the culturally diverse Okanagan community at large.      


25 Year Celebration:

Please join us to celebrate 25 years since the Dedication of our   building in 1992.

We will have the Israeli Dancers performing, a slideshow presentation, various momentos of the past displayed and some Speakers relating to the history of the OJCC so should be a very interesting and enjoyable evening.

Gesher HaHar: Bridging the Mountains

A Pilot Project of Collaboration

Beth Tzedec Congregation & OJCA

Every Jewish community regardless of size or locale serves as an important thread woven into the tapestry of the Jewish People.  The diversity of the Jewish experience enriches Jewish religious and cultural practices as it expands the Jewish capacity to adapt to a rapidly changing world.  Beth Tzedec (Calgary) on the east side of the Canadian Rockies and the Okanagan Jewish Community Association (OJCA) on the western side share a common Jewish milieu in the setting of the independent and individualist spirit of Western Canada. 


NEXT BETH TZEDEC VISITOR: Cantor Russ - November 17-18, 2017

The Benefits of Gesher HaHar: Pilot Project of Collaboration is that it enhances the resources of our smaller community so that it can be a viable setting for the celebration of Jewish life while it challenges the established to act on the important mitzvah of sustaining Klah Yisrael- Jewish Peoplehood.
