Our spiritual leader is Rabbi Elyse Goldstein, known for over 20 years in Toronto as a leading teacher, spiritual mentor and community activist. We meet at the Wolfond Centre, 36 Harbord Street, and have Saturday morning services three times a month at which there is also junior congregation, Kid's Club, and childcare. We have Friday night services twice a month. We offer holiday celebrations and adult education.
We also have an afternoon school for kids grades SK-Bar/Bat Mitzvah which meets on Wednesday afternoons from 4:30-6:45. It is a warm and welcoming school using contemporary curricula and modern methodology. We teach Judaica from values-based approach and Hebrew from an individual approach. Our Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparatory year is co-taught by Rabbi Goldstein and Cantor Michael Rumack.
Our congregation stands on the three pillars of Jewish life as our foundation: Torah, worship and acts of loving kindness. Our vision is a congregation that cares for each other, for the wider community, and for the planet by partnering with other Jewish organizations and the broader general community. We are building an out-of-the-box congregation where intellectual discourse is valued, spirituality is experienced, rituals and life-cycle events are meaningful.
There is a lot of joyful singing, there are kids and teens involved; we are a place where folks without kids or empty nesters feel engaged and where congregational participation is the norm. We are a shul where tradition meets modernity in a happy co-existence.
We are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, drawing from its vast array of resources and its dedication to inclusion. We invite you to become involved!
We meet at 300 Bloor Street West
