Festivals and Life Cycle Events

FESTIVALS

The observance of the Festivals is an integral part of the life of a Jewish congregation. Each festival brings a unique opportunity for learning and celebration.  Most events are Family friendly and encourage participation.

JEWISH RITUAL SERVICES

If your family will be celebrating a particular life-cycle event (teen or adult Bar or Bat Mitzvah, baby naming, wedding, etc.) in the near future, please contact BSVT  and let us help you prepare for your special event.  We can offer advice and assistance on Jewish conversion as well.

SOCIAL EVENTS

Congregants of  BSVT celebrate together throughout the year at social gathering such as Chanukah parties, Purim Carnivals, Shabbat across Canada, Second night Seders, family picnics and more.  Our Congregants especially look forward to the Latke Challenge, Shabbat Shira, and our “Chai”, guest speaker series throughout the year.
