ABOUT OUR PRESENTER

Rabbi Taylor Baruchel is the Director of Outreach and Next Gen Engagement at Holy Blossom Temple.

A proud Montrealer, Rabbi Baruchel was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 2023. A graduate of Dawson College’s Professional Theatre program, she received her M.A. in the History and Philosophy of Religion (2016) after completing a B.A. honours with great distinction in Religion (2013), from Concordia University. Passionate about discourse, she served as a representative of the Jewish community on the Christian Jewish Dialogue of Montréal (CJDM) from 2013-16. She studied in Israel and worked with Project Hillel in Jerusalem in 2017, offering support, guidance, and teaching English to Israeli youth who had left the Ultra-Orthodox world. As the Senior Jewish Educator for the Hillels of Georgia, Rabbi Baruchel helped Jewish college students across the state find and explore their own personal Torah. In this role, she led the distinguished Jewish Learning Fellowship, teaching 250+ fellows over a three-year period. In the summer of 2022, she took on the role of Rabbinic Consultant for the 2023 Netflix hit film You Are SO Not Invited to my Bat Mitzvah starring Adam Sandler, Idina Menzel and Saturday Night Live’s Sarah Sherman.

Above all else, Rabbi Baruchel is a firm believer in the transformative power of a good question. Like a match to flame, a question is the spark that ignites intellectual and spiritual discovery. Dedicated to being a lifelong learner, she holds it to be a duty to question, struggle and engage with all aspects of Jewish life and tradition. From sacred texts to kosher cookbooks, there is always something new to learn and be inspired by.

Whether grabbing a coffee, digging into some texts, or relaxing around the Shabbat table it is Rabbi Baruchel’s hope that we can come up with great questions together.

Additionally, since it will be just before Pesach …

Food Drive to Support our Tiny Pantries.

The Holy Blossom Tiny Pantry is one way our congregation supports Tikkun Olam and gives back to our community members who are in need. Through a dedicated group of volunteers, the pantries at the corner of Bathurst and Dewbourne are stocked daily with food generously donated in the Janice Rotman Tzedakah Centre (found at the Ava Road Main Entrance).

As you prepare your homes for Pesach this year, please support the HBT Tiny Pantries by bringing us your chametz and more. These food items will be stored during the holiday and used to fill our pantries throughout the coming months. We accept all non-perishable food items such as canned beans and vegetables, canned tuna fish, peanut butter, pasta, and rice.
