Don’t let the winter months get you down - this is the perfect opportunity to fill some of your time by volunteering at Temple Israel.

There are lots of choices. You can volunteer to work in our Office assisting with member phone calls and e-mail messages. You can participate in the preparation of our various communications including weekly e-mail announcements and forthcoming bulletins. You can be part of our Social Action Committee and help with Soup preparation for our less fortunate neighbours. You can work on specific projects like our February 25, 2018, Comedy Night.

A number of our Executive and Board members are coming up to the end of their current terms of office.Your interest should be communicated to myself or the Rabbi.

A message from Jason Mandlowitz, Temple President

As instability and conflict continues around the world it is important to recognize how lucky we are to live in Canada. As a society we have accomplished so much over the years and it gives me great pleasure to share with you in Canada’s 150th Birthday.

A Message from President Jason Mandlowitz

As the Winter season ends, I am sure that you are anxiously awaiting the coming of Spring.

February and March were highlighted by a number of activities, including the celebration of Purim, as well as new social programs: Bowling, and our highly successful fundraiser - Saturday Night Live at Temple Israel comedy night.  On March 31, we held our annual Teachers’ Appreciation Night Shabbat Dinner, and we are looking forward to celebrating the annual Second Seder Dinner at the Temple on April 11.
