The Rabbi's Message

Dear Congregants and Friends

We are blessed!    Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur    Times of  trepidation and illumination; Finding joy thru our remorse. Significant times stir us towards our own significance.

Our meaningful and spirited services will join us together in prayer.

Anshei Minsk, one of Toronto’s historical Shuls, continues making new history. Our sacred space, though wide open to the street, maintains its dignity as a refuge and a conduit towards heaven…. Our Shabbos dinners and lunches after minyan is as vital as ever. It’s beautiful to witness lives uplifted by Shabbos. No one should eat alone or go hungry…. Weekday Mincha-Maariv begins after Succos iy”H. The Minsk is open daily and lives up to its ‘never a dull moment reputation’. People visit the Minsk out of curiosity and leave with a shot of inspiration..Thank you volunteers and supporters who recognize the common and unique responsibilities the Minsk is committed to.

……Two Mazal Tovs!  Naomi (welcome Eli) and  Dovi (welcome Peninah) got married in 5782.
