Outdoor Kabbalat Shabbat

Beth David extends an invitation to a very special Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat. September 8th at 7:00 PM. My editorial opinion is this was one of the highlight events of my first year at Beth David. Last year they called it Shabbat Under the Stars. It was on the lawn in front of the shul. The service was enhanced by a musical duo of Marshall Loomer and Michael Rubin, the Cantor and Ritrual Director – a true treat. There was a band that played before Shabbat and a lovely kiddush following the service.
For anyone who has not decided where they want to join, this is a wonderful event where you can come and enjoy one of the most beautiful services. In order to ensure there is sufficient setup and refreshments, please click on the image above to register on the Beth David website.
Come See What Beth David has to offer!

Changes to Beth David Cemetery By-Laws

Learn About the Advantages of Membership

Every synagogue would be excited to welcome Shaar Shalom members and the question remains, what differentiates one synagogue from another and is this difference what I am looking for.

There are those who want to become very involved and look for all the programs and the opportunities at the synagogue. Others want to attend infrequently but want the experience to be a positive one. And there is everything in between.

Attached you will find a couple pages of what Beth David has to offer, one from the perspective of the synagogue and one from testimonials of Shaar Shalom members who have joined.

Beth David Advantages August 2017

At Beth David’s recent Annual General Meeting the membership voted to no longer require a member to remain a member of Beth David in order to receive their Interment Papers from Toronto Hebrew Memorial Park. Of course, they would like you to retain membership but it is not conditional on receiving Interment papers.

If you would like to get a tour of the building or speak to someone about membership, contact the Beth David office at (416) 633-5500. More information is available on the Beth David website.

Kehillat Shaarei Torah Invitation

Open Letter from Kehillat Shaarei Torah

kehillat shaarei torah logo

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 office@shaareitorah.com or 416-229-2600×3 or our Rabbi, Joe Kanofsky at rjk@shaareitorah.com 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
