5781 Membership Renewal

As a result of the challenges presented to us by the Coronavirus, our membership renewal process will be much more streamlined.

We have made your renewal much easier by:

  • not changing your dues - your dues last year will be your dues this year.  With the exception of New Members now in their 2nd year of membership, no increases have been applied to any member.  New Members in their 2nd year have been stepped up to only 50% of the regular rate for their category.  If you wish to step up to a higher level of dues, please let us know;
  • asking many fewer questions this year; personal details will be confirmed at a later point in time;
  • making the subsidy process easier.  Many people have been struck hard by the financial difficulties that accompanied Coronavirus – asking for, and receiving, a membership subsidy will be greatly simplified;
  • continuing to be here for you.  Our Rabbis and our classes continue to be available to you whether the building is open or not; our staff remain ready and able to help you.

As we all help each other through these difficult times, please consider sponsoring another family who will require a subsidy.  If you are so fortunate as to not be financially affected, sponsoring others, to whatever extent you can, is a generous way of helping the community as a whole.

Only one family member needs to fill out the membership renewal.  You need to be logged-in to complete your renewal process.  If you do not have, or forget, your password, simply click on the “Login” button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, and then select “Forgot Password”.

At the Centre, we are continuing to work on creating a safe and meaningful High Holiday experience for all members.  We will provide more information on what that will look like later in the summer.  Consequently, we don't yet have any information on tickets and seating for members and guests.  We will communicate with all members as soon as we gain further clarity.

To renew your membership this year, please login by clicking the "Login" button in the upper right and then click HERE.


The Forest Hill Jewish Centre’s purpose is to nourish individual and communal Jewish connection through Torah learning and the celebration of Jewish life.  The Centre offers the Forest Hill Jewish community and welcomed visitors a warm, vibrant place to enhance their experience of Jewish tradition.

<p>This Monday we celebrate the special Holiday of Tu Bishvat.  Many of our Holidays require a lot of preparation to make happen.   With Tu Bishvat, it’s possible to hold a “Kabbalistic Seder” which has a Pesach feel to it, and it’s also possible to run all around Toronto in search of the most exotic fruit possible; nevertheless, the main part of Tu Bishvat requires one simple activity that we do 28,800...</span>

<p>I grew up in a small town, essentially at the base of a ski hill. I can remember spending many Sundays bundling up to go skiing. For the first while, I spent more time getting up off the ground (having fallen down) then actually standing on my skis. It was only through perseverance (and being made fun of by an older sibling) that I was actually able to learn how. </p>

<p>There’s a famous quote from Mishlei (Proverbs)...</span>

<p>One of the many beautiful aspects of my job is that I get to learn with grooms before they get married. The challenge is that most of them don’t appreciate what I have to say because they think the honeymoon phase of their marriage will last forever. The truth is, that with hard work, you <u>can</u> get permanent bliss, but only after years of work. The honeymoon phase is a gift from Hashem to let us know what we can achieve...</span>
