FUNDRASING FOR SEASON 2 OF CANADIAN JEWISH TV

Bayview and Sheppard resident Ieden Wall is bringing Canadian Jewish TV back to Omni Television for Season 2, starting in September. The weekly program is the first Jewish show on Omni in 30 years. "I am so excited that Rogers Media has invited me back for Season 2. I am well aware that now more than ever, we need a Jewish voice in the mainstream media that dismantles the horrible disinformation and propaganda that leads to virulent Anti-Semitism," says Wall. The weekly program airs Thursdays at 11:30 PM and is repeated Fridays at 12:30 PM on OMNI. For Jewish businesses and organizations looking to reach the heart of the Ontario Jewish world, advertising opportunities are still available.

Welcome to Bible 365!

Thank you for subscribing to our new daily audio series with Rabbi Soloveichik. We couldn't be more excited to begin this journey together this Sunday, July 4. Here's how it will work:

  • On the morning of July 4, and every subsequent Sunday-Friday (6 days/week), you will receive an email from Bible 365. The email will contain: 1) A link to listen to that day's episode on the Bible 365 website; 2) A brief summary of what that day's episode will discuss; and 3) The biblical chapters Rabbi Soloveichik will be exploring that day.
     
  • If you choose to listen to the podcast on our website (www.Bible365Podcast.com), you must be logged in to your account. In order to log in, just click on the "LOGIN" button in the upper-right corner of the homepage and enter your email and the password you created when you signed up.
     
  • If you would like to add the private Bible 365 podcast feed to your smartphone or tablet, you need to: 1) Visit www.Bible365Podcast.com on your phone or tablet; 2) sign in to your account; 3) Click on the button that says "ADD TO YOUR PODCAST FEED" and follow the instructions. An illustrative video is available here.

Every episode will be between 15-20 minutes, and you can listen to them whenever you want. You will have access to all past episodes of Bible 365 throughout the entire year.

Rabbi Soloveichik held a wide-ranging Zoom open house last night about Bible 365, including his advice on how learners of all backgrounds can gain the most from this program, his thoughts on how to prepare, and even his recommendations on which Bible translations to use. In case you missed it, you can watch a recording of the session here.

If you have any practical questions or technical trouble, please email us at info@tikvahfund.org and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Now to the most important thing: below, you will find a schedule for the first week of Bible 365, including episode summaries and the biblical chapters that will be covered. We will send a similar schedule every Friday throughout the year.

Thank you again for joining Rabbi Soloveichik in this bold project. We are looking forward to accomplishing something great together.

Best regards,

The Bible 365 Team


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.

Survey from the City

The City of Toronto is currently undertaking a third-party review of its community engagement process for new shelter and other services for people experiencing homelessness. This review will identify opportunities to enhance this process, to make sure that all new shelter and other services for people experiencing homelessness are set up for success. 

The City is inviting local residents and businesses to share their perspectives. All residents are encouraged to share their ideas, whether or not they have participated in the community engagement process or live near a shelter or a service for people experiencing homelessness.

There are two ways residents and businesses can provide input into the Community Engagement Review process:

1.    Participate in an anonymous online survey

2.    Participate in a virtual focus group

You can learn more about the Community Engagement Review process on the Welcoming New Shelters web page.


 


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.

PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM
