As we cope with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many of our services and programs are on-line.

When the building is closed, staff will be working remotely from home. They can be reached through email or by calling the Temple office. If you need to get in touch with a staff member, leave a voicemail message and your call will be returned as soon as possible or send an email:

During this pandemic, many of us have faced extraordinary and unexpected needs. Your congregation is here for you, both spiritually and financially, through these challenging times. We have established two particular ways in which we can help you and your family financially to get through this time:


  1.  Temple Emanu-El has partnered with Jewish Free Loan Toronto (JFLT). We will be your guarantor for an interest-free COVID loan from JFLT. To apply through this simplified process, click on the link below:

  1.  Through the generosity of the Ida Freeman Fund and other donors, the Rabbi's Discretionary Fund can help support you. You have helped sustain this congregation as a member, let us help you now that you are in need.


Please consult with Rabbi Landsberg for more information on both these initiatives.
