The Rabbi’s Development Fund
On November 22nd, we honoured Aviva for her dedication and service to Congregation Shir Libeynu and we also celebrated her ordination (smicha) as rabbi, which she has been in all but formal title since our beginning. Along with a traditional Havdalah service, we held this unique celebration of Jewish leadership, Jewish continuity and progress. With Aviva’s guidance and bravery, Shir Libeynu has led the way in Toronto for acceptance and full involvement of women, interfaith couples and the LGBT community. We were the trailblazers and we will continue to be the leading edge in Jewish pluralism and social responsibility in Toronto and Canada.
In honour of this day and to build for the future, Shir Libeynu started the Rabbi’s Program Development Fund. We continue to welcome donations from the Congregation Shir Libeynu family and friends in Aviva’s honour so that we may provide for programming and projects that are near and dear to Rabbi Aviva’s heart and reflect the shul’s interests and needs.
