Our Bnei Mitzvah Program: Still Accepting Registrants!
 

Our next b'nei mitzvah program will begin in the autumn of 2017, when we will welcome a small cohort of candidates.
This is a year-long series of classes, excursions and socializing that usually precedes the young person becoming a bar or bat mitzvah with Shir Libeynu.  You can expect: a  learning enrichment program    that will include a series of workshops and sessions with the youngsters, as well as their families; social opportunities for families at 
oneg  Shabbat , a tour of Jewish Toronto and other excursions; a  Tzedekah  project, and more.
Families who wish their children to  become a bar or bat mitzvah  with Shir Libeynu must enroll them in this program well in advance of the ceremony. Families usually proceed to the simcha part of the bar/bat mitzvah process after this program, but it is not a requirement.  For more detailed information on what you can expect from our entire program, including the paramaters and details of the ceremony led by Rabbi Goldberg at Shir Libeynu, click  here.
To register your child for this program or to get more information, please email our administrator at admin@shirlibeynu.ca.

OUR CONGREGANTS TELL US...

It has come to our attention that some congregants are suffering from sensitivities and allergies to various scents worn by a few others. Perfumes and colognes can also cause breathing issues for certain people. Please be mindful of their needs so that we can all be comfortable and enjoy our services. Please refrain from wearing strong scents, in all products, or be modest in the application of them when attending our events and services. 

Thank you, Mishpoocha.
