Kehillat Shaarei Torah Invitation

Open Letter from Kehillat Shaarei Torah

Dear Members of the Shaar Shalom Community:

As some of you may still be looking for a warm, welcoming, traditional community to spend this year’s High Holidays, and perhaps eventually even join; we would like to invite you to come try out Kehillat Shaarei Torah, an intimate, friendly synagogue at Bayview Ave. and the 401.  Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, birthplaces, and religious outlooks, and we value community, friendship, meaningful prayer and learning opportunities, and camaraderie. 

You are most welcome to come visit us any shabbat or weekday morning; and we have designated three upcoming days as special “welcome to our friends from Shaar Shalom” days.  Please join us for shabbat services and kiddush on June 17 and/or August 5; we would be so happy to meet you.

In addition, we have a very popular end-of-the-summer barbecue on Labour Day Weekend, Monday September 4.  This is our best-attended annual event after High Holiday services, so it’s a good chance to meet most of our members!  We only ask that you RSVP if you would like to come to the BBQ, so we make sure we have enough burgers and franks on hand. 

Please be in touch with our Executive Director, Alan Domb, at or 416-229-2600×3 or our Rabbi, Joe Kanofsky at or 416-229-2600×2 with any questions about our synagogue that you may have.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you soon!


the Board of Directors,
Kehillah Shaarei Torah
