Community Happenings

JIAS (Jewish Immigrant Aid Services) is celebrating 100 years in Canada!  As part of our celebration, JIAS Toronto is partnering with the Ontario Jewish Archives to collect immigration stories from across the community to capture the diverse immigration journeys that families have taken and the new lives they have built in Canada.

Check out our Stories Celebrating 100 Years for inspiration and to share your own or your family’s immigration journey – whether it was last year, last decade, or last century! 

                         Also check us out on social media to keep updated on what is happening at JIAS,                                       100th year celebration events, and to follow the amazing stories that are shared with us.

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.
