Welcome to Temple Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El is a vibrant, progressive community committed to Jewish renewal at home, in the synagogue and in the wider Jewish universe. We seek to nurture the Jewish life of all of our congregants, young and old, in times of distress and in moments of joy. We are steadfast in our commitment to תיקון עולם (tikkun olam, or social justice) in the greater world around us and in Israel, and we seek to strengthen our ties of love and loyalty with Israel in all arenas. We are a warm and intimate community, one which deeply values all of its diverse members.
On Friday December 4, at 8:00pm will speak on
Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Briut Ontario Initiative (a Ve’ahavta and First Nations Health Promotion project).
Avrum founded Ve’ahavta, Canada’s only Jewish humanitarian organization, in 1996 after working seven years as a fundraiser at the UJA/Jewish Federation of Greater Toronto. He is a blogger, a writer and regular columnist in The CJN.
Among its many tikkun olam initiatives to improve the lives of all of Canada’s marginalized, Ve’ahavta has successful partnerships with First Nations groups and a iMitzvah program to couple b’nei mitzvah kids with active community-service projects.
A Social Action Initiative
TEMPLE EMANU-EL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Work is nearing completion.
The schedule calls for all work to be completed by early December.
Please take extra care when entering and leaving the Temple and grounds as:
- The path from Vyner Ave is open but not finished.
- The railings, for the front steps may not yet be in place.
Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
