Our Stories

dr. jeff and judy mandel

Being a part of the Forest Hill Jewish Centre enables us to be a part of a special community. It provides a plethora of opportunities to discuss Judaism, to learn and be inspired from others, enhancing our Jewish identity. Rabbi Elie continues to inspire and support the community, and we look forward to sharing future simchas as part of the congregation. As Judy's parents were Holocaust survivors, we are committed to educating future generations and to continue sharing Jewish traditions and customs within the Forest Hill community.

The Centre fosters real relationships and friendships.  This is not a stuffy or stiff shul; rather, it is a place to meet, kibbitz, joke and share stories.  It proliferates the idea that religious observance need not be forced or dry or judgmental, but, rather, it is honest, inquisitive and humorous.  The emphasis on real and genuine relationships at the Centre creates a wonderful atmosphere.

I enjoy coming to the FHJC because I am receiving traditional Judaism in a vibrant, family friendly atmosphere.  The FHJC is very inviting and very warm to everyone.


The FHJC is a place where everyone is welcomed and accepted. The rabbis are intelligent, inspiring and caring as well as charismatic, funny and understanding.  Kiddush is always plentiful and it is a time for catching up with friends and community members.  We feel accepted here, respected and our circle of friends is numerous.  It is our home away from home.
