We all want to live in a vibrant kehillah.
What makes our kehillah the biggest and best in Canada is its richness and diversity. We have synagogues affiliated with every major denomination as well as dozens of “mini-gogues” all across the GTA.
We have eleven youth groups and six Jewish summer camps.
We have a network of bustling community centres anchoring the community in three distinct parts of the city.
Our Federation is one of the most active in North America.
We have 15 Jewish day schools feeding students into six high schools.
Isn’t that enough?
ADRABA makes Toronto’s Jewish ecosystem even more robust. We all benefit when institutions of differing perspectives and sizes work and grow together.
Choice is good. By bringing a different approach to Jewish learning, ADRABA provides young Jews with even more opportunities to engage our tradition, values, history and language.
ADRABA’s blended Jewish approach is doing high school differently. ADRABA is designed for the 21st century and for sustainability.
Support for ADRABA comes in many forms.
Let’s start with the easiest and work our way up.
First, be our evangelist. This sounds like a serious time commitment – but it’s really all about sharing. When you’re meeting a friend for coffee, catch up then tell them something neat about ADRABA. Share our FB or Instagram posts with your networks. Accost random strangers and tell them ADRABA is magic.
Second, volunteer at ADRABA. The gift of your time and attention is immeasurable and sends the message that you care. Volunteering is an act of ḥesed, and regarded by 9 out of 10 rabbis as a mitzvah! Also, the more you volunteer, the happier and more self-confident you’ll feel!
Third, the next time you go to your local coffee shop, perhaps to meet up with that friend, be mindful of how much you spend on the caffeinated beverage of your choice. Then, consider whether you’d like to “buy us a coffee” either on a one time or monthly basis.
Fourth finds us in the usual space of a larger (than a cup of coffee) donation on a one-time or monthly basis.
Again, feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help with the arrangements.
If you’re ready to make that small donation, let’s get started right now!
