About Us

The Beth Israel Beth Aaron Congregation has been serving the Jewish community of Cote St. Luc for over 50 years. We are an orthodox congregation that embraces deep engagement with Jewish life, learning, and observance, while at the same time, through word and deed, affirms the Jewish imperative of involvement with the broader society. Our congregation emphasizes the warmth and excitement of Jewish life and the centrality of family in ensuring a vibrant and relevant Jewish future. We aspire to create an atmosphere where all Jews are welcome and can find avenues to strengthen their Jewish lives.


We are deeply committed to the State of Israel and affirm the obligation on all Jews to play their role in securing its security and its standing in the international community. Our synagogue has become a central address for Jewish activism in defense of Israel and the rights of Jews everywhere.



Rabbi Poupko has served as rabbi of BIBA since 1986 and is well known as an exciting teacher and inspiring orator. His deep commitment to the synagogue members and his role as a communal leader is source of great pride to the congregation. Rabbi Poupko is accessible and approachable at all times and on any issue of concern.

Rabbi Stiefel has served as Chazzan Sheini of BIBA since 1984. In addition to his commitment to serving the members of our congregation, he is a highly respected Jewish educator. He is available for teaching Bar Mitzvah students as well as assistance in all synagogue-related ritual matters.
