Family programs are always a cornerstone of Beth Tzedec. With dedicated staff to engage families of all ages, we hope to remain a go-to synagogue for Toronto’s Jewish families. Whether at fun new events like our Teddy Bear Seder, Camp Hi-Ho experience, or regular services like our Short and Sweet Family Service, we are working on bringing you the most memorable and unique opportunities we can.


Our popular Short and Sweet Monthly Family Service is an abridged Shabbat service that is family friendly and includes large amounts of child participation. It is led by Daniel Silverman, our Director of Education and Family Programming. A dairy luncheon is served after each service with lots of opportunities for schmoozing!

Throughout the year, our monthly Family Friday Night Dinners, generously supported by the Gertner family, give intergenerational families with kids of all ages the experience of a wonderful Kabbalat Shabbat service followed by a kid friendly Shabbat dinner. It is an experience not to be missed!


At Beth Tzedec, there are lots of opportunities for families to celebrate and mark the holidays together. On the High Holidays, we offer a number of Family High Holiday Services and Experiences that allows parents and children to worship and engage together. Some of the year’s holiday highlights include Sukkot and Simhat Torah Programming, the Purim Carnival and our H̱anukkah celebration.

Other Experiences

We offer so many ways to engage with our community. Our Friday Pre-Shabbat Baby Class helps our youngest community members learn about Shabbat songs and practices. Our Family H̱esed Experiences give families the chance to give back and make positive change in our world. There will be many more programs and events throughout the year, and some of the best ideas come from community members, so please be in touch!
