Become a part of Holy Blossom’s vibrant Jewish community — Life can blossom here.

Find your home in this historic congregation — Toronto’s first synagogue; a place where tradition meets modernity. Here we honour our noble past while boldly preparing for our future.

Join this leading synagogue as we come together to pursue Tikkun Olam — mending the world — through our wide-reaching social justice initiatives.

Pray with our sacred community at our daily minyan, on Shabbat, Festivals and Holy Days.

Learn from our inspiring clergy, as well as scholars and leading figures from around the world, who come to share the wisdom of our tradition in ways that challenge the intellect and enrich our lives.

Find your Jewish home away from home in our community of communities, where our members come together to form lasting bonds with one another.

We hope you will join us.

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.
