Presidents Message

Welcome to our web site – welcome to our Shul. We are a dynamic Modern Orthodox synagogue located away from “Bathurst Street” in the Bayview/York Mills area of the City of Toronto.
From our humble beginnings some 30+ years ago, our shul has grown to become a vibrant and caring “Kehillah” which is dedicated to our community and supportive of its members. We are the ‘little shul that could’. We owe our existence to the vision of a handful of families who had immigrated to Toronto from South Africa and who wanted to create a ‘Kehillah’ that cared for each other. From that vision, our community grew to include other families that were new to our part of the city, to our community or to the Modern Orthodox tradition. We are a community that values education and growth and it is for that reason that we place special emphasis on learning with our Rabbi, and in our continuing education program. We are also a Kehillah that is committed to our youth and to ensuring that they receive a taste of “yiddishkeit” that encourages them to taste more. But most of all we are a welcoming congregation, happy to see and greet strangers at our daily and Shabbat services and hopeful that our special spirit may give our guests (and hopefully future members) the desire to come back and spend more time in our shul.

Our web site is only one of the ways we hope to communicate with our friends and members. We are always looking for suggestions as to how we might improve our interaction. Please explore our web site, learn more about us, ask the Rabbi a question (by e-mail) or write us a note suggesting improvements. Helpful hints are always welcome.

Thank-you for visiting – come back and stay longer the next time.
