Two Volunteer opportunities with Habonim

31/10/17 12:52:23 PM

Oct31

 

We are looking for volunteers to join a Lay Shiva Group, whose members would be called upon, from time to time, to lead services at homes observing Shiva. As our congregation grows, we want to be sure that we are able to meet our growing needs while maintaining our “small shul” feel. This is a nice way to build community and help congregants feel connected when they are going through an extremely difficult time.

The volunteers must be able to read Hebrew and be familiar with prayer services. Training will be provided to ensure that you are comfortable in this role.

If you are willing and able, please contact

Melissa Muskat melissamuskat@gmail.com.

 


 

Calling all high school students! Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to earn community service hours? Do you enjoy working with kids? Can you read simple Hebrew? If you answered yes to those three questions consider volunteering at Habonim's Jewish Heritage School on Sunday mornings!

To find out more contact the principal,

Documentary by Habonim members

15/08/17 02:45:21 PM

Aug15

 

Habonim members Karen Shopsowitz, (Producer/ Director)

Mark Landau (Director of Photography)

 

 The Other Side of the Hero

A feature length documentary about first responders dealing with PTSD. Actor Enrico Colantoni (Sgt. Greg Parker from TV’s hit show, Flashpoint) is our guide on this journey. In the documentary, we get to know first responders through their families, their spouses, their co-workers, and themselves; people who have experienced the flip-side of what can happen when a hero discovers that they are not emotionally immune to all that they deal with during their shifts. 

The screening takes place on Wednesday, August 23 at the Regent Theatre, 511 Mt. Pleasant Road, Toronto. Doors open at 8 p.m., with the film at 8.30 p.m. 

Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door or in advance, by clicking: http://conta.cc/2uQnDm8

We are very pleased to inform you that arrangements have been finalized for our temporary location while the new Habonim building is under construction.

The temporary location will be at the Leo Baeck Day School located at 501 Arlington Avenue, which is less than 4km from Habonim.

The Leo Baeck facility boasts a fully operational modern sanctuary which we will have the benefit of using for our congregational services including high holidays, bar/bat mitzvahs and monthly Kabbalat Shabbat. In addition, the Jewish Heritage School will have use of the up to-date, bright classroom facilities at Leo Baeck. There is a small parking lot at the rear of the school and also street parking available.
