September 8: Tishrei in a Day!

Tooltip Text


Welcome to the homepage of our Tishrei in a Day program, scheduled for Sunday September 8, 2019, at 159 Almore Ave. in Toronto!

G-d willing, we will deliver 16 classes about the month of Tishrei, starting with Rosh HaShanah and continuing with Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah!

Each class will represent one of five categories: Tanach, Tefillah (prayer), Machshavah (Jewish thought), History and Halachah (law).

Come spend 30 minutes with us – or stay for an hour or two – or learn from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM! Lunch served at 12:30 PM (details below). And for those who live outside the GTA – we expect to broadcast the sessions on Facebook Live!

We are grateful to Sarena and David Koschitzky for sponsoring the event in memory of Riva Koschitzky z”l.
