“Sandwich Sunday” –  A Tov Team Initiative

Volunteers needed for 2 hours a month to make sandwiches for the needy. We gather  one Sunday each month at Dovercourt Recreation Centre at 10:30 a.m. It’s a wonderful social experience for a good cause. It’s also a great opportunity for teens who need their community service hours. We have a wonderful dedicated group but I would really love more  Please help this worthy endeavour.

The dates for the rest of the Sandwich Sunday year are as follows:  March 5th, 2017; April 2nd, 2017; May 7th, 2017; June 4th, 2017

Please contact Judy Bosloy at 613-797-0085 or jbosloy@rogers.com

Photographer for Youth and Family Programming

Do you have an interest in capturing the excitement and fun of our youth and family programs? All you need is a digital camera and some free time. Kehillat Beth Israel is looking for a volunteer photographer to help with taking photos at our upcoming programs (Friday before Shabbat, Saturday nights, and/or Sunday mornings/afternoons). Applicants must have access to a digital camera and transportation (programs may take place at Coldrey Avenue or at off-site locations). For more information or to apply, please contact Jon Zrihen at youth@kehillatbethisrael.com.

Soup to Celebrate

Join a small group of volunteers to prepare vegetarian soup for Shabbat once a month. This is an easy way to enhance the prepared Kiddush and it is especially appreciated when the weather cools. Recipes have already been tested and approved! A short-term commitment that takes only a couple of hours. For more info, contact Barbara Okun at souphappy2@gmail.com.
