My membership creates a Jewish home for my interfaith family

We joined Holy Blossom because it gives our family a foundation on which to build our Jewish life. Our interfaith family is welcomed with open arms, and from our son’s Brit to the monthly Tot Shabbat services, we feel we are giving our boys a solid Jewish future. HBT embraces the unique perspective my family brings to events and conversations for and about young Jewish families in Toronto. The kindness and love shown to us by everyone at HBT makes us feel that we belong, no matter what religion my husband is. The generosity of the other young families is something that continues to draw us in and we seem to make new friends at every Shabbat. If our interfaith family can find a home here, then every family looking for a welcoming space to build their Jewish life should join us at Holy Blossom Temple.

Life can blossom here.
