Our Inclusive Spirit — You Are Welcome Here

Holy Blossom Temple is guided by our values. As a community, we are always learning and growing together, as we aspire to fulfill our promise to be an inclusive spiritual home to all who seek Jewish community. Our Director of Community Engagement would be happy to speak with you if you have any questions about inclusion at Holy Blossom Temple.

 

Interfaith Families

As a flagship congregation of the North American Reform Movement, we warmly welcome and support interfaith families who choose to make Holy Blossom Temple their Jewish community. We invite families to immerse themselves in our full range of programming, and to bring Jewish culture and practice into their homes. We provide tools for individuals and families who would like to explore deepening their Jewish commitment, including full rabbinic support to families for whom conversion is their chosen path.

 

LGBTQ+

We are proud to call people of all sexual orientations and gender identities part of our community. We encourage LGBTQ+ members to celebrate their life milestones with us.

 

 

 

Jews of Colour

The Jewish people are racially and ethnically diverse and has been for millennia. We invite Jews of all racial and ethnic backgrounds into our community.

 

 

 

Intellectual Disabilities and Special Needs

Our Youth Education Centre has been a pioneer in educating our children with intellectual disabilities and special needs. Our Director of Education works with parents individually to ensure that the needs of their children are able to be met.

We are committed to building opportunities for adult community members with intellectual disabilities and special needs to find meaningful volunteer opportunities at Temple.

 

Physical Accessibility

Holy Blossom Temple has recently invested to significantly improve accessibility to our spaces and ensure that our staff and volunteers are trained on the accommodations we provide. We are proud to offer a barrier-free environment. For more information about accessibility, please visit the Accessibility page on our website.
