We hope this will just be the beginning of Holy Blossom Temple’s place in your family’s Jewish journey.

From our Little Blossom classes through to our Pre-Nursery and Nursery Programs, you will find that we recognize that the emotional, social, intellectual and physical nurturing of a child must be based on a sound understanding of developmentally appropriate practice. Under the leadership of our Director of the Early Childhood Centre at Holy Blossom Temple, Jessica Lipinski, our educators are committed to maintaining Holy Blossom’s Early Childhood Centre as an exceptional Jewish early-learning institution.

If you have any questions, please click here to send an email to Jessica Lipinski or call (416) 789-3291, ext. 240. Applications will be processed as received.

You will also find at Holy Blossom a vibrant community of young families enjoying family education in our Youth Education Centre, including our Jewish Parenting series, our kid-energy Shabbat morning Family Services, Family First Fridays, and Havdalah programs. All these will help you to carve out times when you and your child can have fun and meaningful Jewish experiences together.

As well, your child can learn about making the world a little bit brighter (tikkun olam) by taking part in our Mitzvah Day and other social justice programs.

And you can join one of our new Chavurot – small groups of young families who meet about once a month to “do Jewish” together.

Jewish journeys are especially rewarding when you take them as part of a community. If you have not yet found a synagogue to call home, we warmly invite you to experience what Holy Blossom Temple has to offer.

This year, Holy Blossom Temple has introduced a brand new membership model for families like yours. Find out more about our personalized approach to membership at, and partner with us on your Jewish journey. Contact Tema Smith at [email protected] or a 416-789-3291 ext. 232 for more information or to join today.
