Share yourself

Many people in our community have skills that support or provide outreach to many of our members who require personal assistance. Our Hesed Committee and clergy are always looking for people who can help members of the congregation in their homes or when they come to the Synagogue. Please contact Avital in the main office at 416-781-3511.

Start or Join a Havurah

Looking for running buddies? Wondering how those “other moms” manage to look rested with an infant in their arm? Interested in living an inspired and more Jewishly connected lifestyle in your home, but have no idea where to start? A havurah, which comes from the Hebrew word for fellowship, is an integral part of synagogue life. Belonging to a havurah means being part of something greater than ourselves. It offers members an opportunity to get together in a small group with others of similar interests to plan programs which meet their unique needs. A havurah takes on a personality of its own, reflecting the thoughts and interests of its members.
