*New* Information Session for 2016/2017 B’nei Mitzvah Program
Sunday, May 8, 2016, 10:30 a.m.
We are recruiting families with young people who will be at least age 13 in 2017 to early 2018. Our next b’nei mitzvah program will begin in the autumn of 2016, when we will welcome a small cohort of candidates.
You can expect: a learning enrichment program that will include a series of workshops and sessions with the children, as well as their families; social opportunities for families at oneg Shabbat, tours of Jewish Toronto and other events; a Tzedekah project, and more.
Our Bnei Mitzvot Program
This year’s bnei mitzvah program is underway with learning sessions, a tzedekah project, social events for the families and the opportunity to celebrate this meaningful simcha with the community. L’dor va’dor : from generation to generation. Join us in supporting our young people during this part of their educational journey.
On their tour of the Kensington Market area, the cohort of students, their families and teacher and some Shir Libeynites learned about Jewish history in Toronto from a volunteer with the Ontario Jewish Archives. The visit that day included one to our community’s former High Holy Days’ home, Cecil Community Centre, the site of a shul in the 1920s.
November, 2014: At Rabbi Goldberg’s ordination, five veteran bar/bat mitzvas, who are still members of our shul (and some even attend regularly!), paid a moving tribute to Aviva for her guidance and humour during their educational journeys.
