Next Shabbat Service – February 16, Parshat Tetzaveh
Family History Shabbat!

No ticket or registration required for this service.

Music. Meaning. Inspiration.

Join us with your whole family on Shabbat of Family Weekend for Family History Shabbat, as we partner with the Jewish Genealogical Society of Toronto. Our fabulous Shabbat service will be even more exciting when we celebrate with Music from My Grandfather and Yours!

What are the melodies you remember your grandparents singing? Now is the time to send your requests to Cantor Simon so that he can write vocal arrangements for the Toronto Festival Singers and everyone can sing your grandfather’s tunes when we daven!
Special Guest Speaker: Judy Kasman, president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Toronto.
Speaking on The Link Between Music and Genealogy
