Beth Israel Synagogue (Hebrew: בית ישראל) is a Modern Orthodox synagogue located at 1480 Oxford Street in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Formally chartered by a Private Member's Bill in the Nova Scotia legislature in 1895, it grew out of the Baron de Hirsch Hebrew Benevolent Society (named after Baron Maurice de Hirsch), which was formed in 1890. It was the first Orthodox congregation in Canada east of Montreal, and still provides the only daily minyan in Canada east of Montreal.
