Soup’s On!
FEB 23
UJA Genesis and Women’s Philanthropy present a unique opportunity to support isolated seniors in our community with a cooking class! The Bernard Betel Centre and Circle of Care clients will join us in a cooking tutorial to enjoy some socialization and a new healthy soup recipe to get through the winter. Since many community members may have limited access to groceries, we’re also running a food drive to help with the ingredients. With the elderly experiencing food insecurity and isolation more than others, it’s so important to give back and make sure they have a warm bowl of soup and some great company! Please register by February 7.
Northern Hospitality: The Last Resort
FEB 24
Please join us as we view clips from The Last Resort, a documentary film about the vibrant Miami Beach community of Jewish retirees, and the transformation of South Beach between the 1960s and 1980s. Dara Solomon, Executive Director of UJA's Ontario Jewish Archives, will have an intimate conversation with the film’s director and producer, Kareem Tabsch, who will share how this “Shtetl on the beach” has been preserved through the remarkable collections of two young photographers who immersed themselves in the iconic South Beach of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.

Call for Volunteers: Help UJA Check In on Vulnerable Community Members

With the long, cold winter and the GTA under another lockdown, we are mobilizing our phone tree for another round of wellness calls across the community. We want to check in on community members who might be experiencing isolation or food insecurity, or require other support. We are going to begin by calling Jewish seniors, many of whom are finding themselves especially vulnerable during these difficult times. We invite you to sign up and join the team!
