City Shul Shabbat

Saturday morning at 10 am
Once-a-month Family Services and Tot Shabbat for families with younger children: see below
Once-a-month Friday nights 6:30 pm


ALL services and events meet at 300 Bloor Street West.

Please check the schedule below as we DO NOT meet every week.

All City Shul Shabbat Services are free and all are welcome, whether you are a member or not. Visitors, guests, newcomers, those just visiting Toronto on business or vacation, those just curious, shul-shoppers and shul-hoppers and regulars all can join us at any and all of our Shabbat services, kiddush lunches, and Friday night services and dinners. We never have "private" services or a "private" kiddush of "invited-only" folks - whether or not there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, babynaming, aufruf, or any other simcha. 
 

We also have "The Prayground”— an area specifically set aside for young children (0-5) together with an adult during services. Tots can feel happy and at home moving around, while their parent/grandparent can still feel they are "within" and enjoying the main service.

 

New to our synagogue? Just checking us out? Haven't been to synagogue in who-knows-how-long? We will provide a "shul buddy" to sit with you and help you feel welcome and at home at our Shabbat services! Email the Rabbi to be matched up. (Please note we need 2-3 days lead notice for a buddy-match).
