Please join us on Thursday, February 15 at Pitblado Law for a delicious kosher burger lunch and a fascinating seminar, presented by the Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) in partnership with B’nai Brith Canada.

Zoltan Jakal.jpeg

Zoltan Jakal was born in Budapest, Hungary where he started his singing career at the age of 14.

Chabad Torah Tots is full of the kind of love, care, learning, and support that makes for successful kids

Chabad Torah Tots is not just a childcare or preschool option for your 2-5 year old.  Well, it is, but it’s far more than that.  With a real focus on curriculum that boosts both a child’s development and their Jewish knowledge, it offers something far beyond babysitting.  This is a small preschool that enables children to develop, grow, and celebrate their Judaism through every day learning and holiday celebrations.  The rich international environment and strong supports for family help us succeed in our efforts to raise healthy, happy and loving Jewish kids.
