Celebrating Shemini Atzeret and Simhat Torah
Beth Tzedec
Sep 23rd 2021

As a kehillah, we have shared a meaningful Kol Nidrei and Yom Kippur of repentance, reflection and prayer. We next look forward to celebrating Sukkot in our sukkahs, gathering to sing, daven and to share meals and conversation with families, friends and neighbours. 

Our Shemini Atzeret and Simhat Torah services on September 27 to 29 (including the evening Minhah-Ma'ariv Services) will streamed to the Beth Tzedec All-Access livestreaming hub at: You do not need to go to the Beth Tzedec website to get to the services livestream.
