It’s been quite a year at the Forest Hill Jewish Centre, the highlight of course being our much anticipated move into the new building. Although we’ve only officially been in the new building for a few months, it already feels like home and the vision of a thriving Jewish community in the heart of Forest Hill is now very much a reality.

We are open for “business” and wish to welcome you as a new member of our special community. Every day the staff and committed volunteers are hard at work continuing to develop and plan inspiring programs, entertaining social events and engaging in acts of community kindness that members are all so privileged to benefit from. The Forest Hill Jewish Centre offers something for everyone including:-

• A beautiful social hall and rooftop terrace to celebrate weddings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, bris,
and baby naming ceremonies.

• For the kids we have weekly Shabbat programs, awesome Chanukah and Purim parties, mom
and tot music classes, challah bakes and so much more.

• For adults we have parenting workshops, marriage classes, women's breakfast lectures and
sisterhood events, golf, scotch and cigar evenings, football games, and inspiring learning

The Forest Hill Jewish Centre truly is a unique environment where Jewish life flourishes, where people are made to feel welcome and have the opportunity to be part of a warm, family- oriented community.

Membership Benefits include the following:

• Access to rabbinic counseling and pastoral services at no cost.

• Ability to make a bar mitzvah on Shabbat.

• Reduced rates for hall and room rentals

• High Holiday seating in the main sanctuary for members and their children between 10 and 22 years

• Members can access High Holiday seats for visiting extended family members

• Internment rights at time of need

If you are still uncertain, we offer a one-year trial membership at a significantly reduced rate of only $365 so that you are able to experience all that the Forest Hill Jewish Centre has to offer before making a more permanent commitment. The membership committee has worked hard to ensure that our rates are fair and comparable with other synagogues in Toronto.

We appreciate your interest in joining our community and welcome your comments and questions. Please feel free to contact the chair of our membership committee, Gabi Krug at 416-258-9517 or the executive director, Rabbi Dan Rand at 416-483- 0883 x 223
