Holocaust Remembrance Day


Do you know a Jewish student starting university in Ontario this fall?

Hillel Ontario, your home for Jewish campus life, will send them a welcome gift package! We will also enroll them in our newsletters so they don’t miss out on Jewish programming, opportunities to make new friends and other great events.

Let Hillel welcome your first year student to campus before they even arrive.


Online hate is spreading faster than ever before. We know too well that antisemitic conspiracies and blood libels can turn into real-world violence. This has to stop.

Combating the spread of hatred online has been a CIJA priority for a close to a decade. Working together with people like YOU, we have made significant progress – including the adoption of our recommendations by Canada’s Justice Committee. This was the first step in developing a national strategy to combat online hate.

In the coming days, formal legislation will be tabled in parliament. We are entering the home stretch, and WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure our elected representatives understand the urgency in combating online hate.

Please take 30 seconds and TAKE ACTION! Your message will go to your MP, the Prime Minister, and key elected officials who are shaping the legislation. Your voice will be heard.

Together WE CAN make difference. 

The Kultura Collective and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto are pleased to offer this website as a resource to the community to celebrate Jewish arts, culture and heritage. During this difficult time, we will come together through online learning, streaming performances and exhibitions – both socially distant and virtually. As a community, we will share and explore our culture and traditions through meaningful artistic experiences. We hope these events will keep you connected, engaged and inspired throughout this challenging time.



The Jewish value of gemilut chasadim (loving kindness) is a driving force behind the important work that we do.

We have seen a dramatic increase in the need for food from our Emergency Food Drive. Just in the last month, we have had a 30% increase in requests for assistance. We already have delivered more than 6,500 boxes into the hands of the needy since the beginning of the pandemic. With rising cases of COVID-19 coupled with the restrictive lockdown, the dangers remain real, and countless vulnerable members of our community still worry about finding safe access to food. 

B'nai Brith's COVID-19 Emergency Food Drive is funded 100% by donations from caring people like you! We have not missed a single week of delivering essential food items to the doorsteps of those in need – all free and all in a safe manner. This program has had an enormous impact on seniors, Holocaust survivors, veterans, and people with disabilities.
