The Song Shul's groundbreaking program highlights the colourful and varied backgrounds of the Jewish people from around the globe.
Each month we feature a speaker who was born in another country, sharing stories of what it was like to grow up Jewish in that country. Hear about home rituals, community events, political challenges, anti-Semitism and more.
Following that, the Canadian-born child or grandchild of the speaker then shares stories of growing up here in Canada as the offspring of a foreigner. Hear how the traditions of the "old country" affect the childhood of a Torontonian. Recent speakers have featured South Africa, Hungary, the Soviet Union, Morocco, Italy, and Sweden.

Featured country: BELGIUM with Willy Halpert “Hidden Child of the Holocaust”
Free Admission, All welcome.

Sponsor: The Song Shul
