City Shul Shabbat Details

Takes place on Saturday mornings beginning at 10 am

Once-a-month we offer Tot Shabbat for families with younger children: see below

Once-a-month Friday nights at 6:30 pm

ALL services and events are online until further notice

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, 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. 

City Shul is a children friendly environment Children are always welcome at our Saturday services.  If there's a time we need quiet-like the mourner's Kaddish, for example, or during the dvar Torah-we will ask them to wait outside for a moment. Family Friday nights are totally geared for children. Older children who can sit through an hour service without activities or childcare are welcome to attend our Adult Kabbalat Shabbat. On Saturdays we always-even on Bar/Bat Mitzvah days-have Club Katan (ages 7-11, crafts, music, discussion, and Judaic-themed games) plus the "Prayground"-an area in the sanctuary where parents can sit with playing toddlers-for little ones.

Children begin with us in the "main" service up until after the silent Amidah, then are welcome to stay or go off to their various activities. At the end of the service the children are invited to come up for a blessing, and to get a treat if they haven't already gathered and thrown candies at our Bar/Bat Mitzvah child! Throughout the year, about once a month, we add a Saturday Family "Mishpacha" service filled with music and family-friendly activities for all ages and Tot Shabbat, a 60 minute programme for ages 1-5 that focuses on song, movement, a fun and do-able craft, and Jewish time together with a parent; and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Club, a special programme with our shins for grades 6 and 7. Dates for these special programmes appear under "service dates."

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).
