Solel Congregation of Mississauga
Solel provides an environment in which Jews by birth and by choice and non-Jewish family and friends celebrate the richness and beauty of Jewish life through life-cycle events, communal worship, and education.
Located near highway 403 and Erin Mills Parkway near Sawmill Creek in Mississauga, the site has a large amount of green space that includes some fairly mature trees and rolling landscape. The site was contoured when the building was built in the late 70’s and now presents a unique topography that is excellent for establishing habitat.
