What is Jewish&

Half Jewish? Part Jewish? An eighth Jewish on your grandfather’s side?  

You don't need to quantify or qualify your Jewishness! We welcome you and everything you bring to the table at Jewish& - a program that explicitly gathers multi-faith, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic folks and families for Jewish exploration, education and celebration. 

From our ‘Building The Jewish& Coobook’ workshops to our Jewish Foundations classes, webinars on celebrating holidays and life cycle events from a Jewish& perspective, and our monthly community zoom check-ins, Jewish& is here to meet you wherever you are on your Jewish journey.

Jewish& In The Market: A Tour Of Kensington’s Layered Stories - Sunday, Jun 2, 10 am-12 pm

Peel back the layers of Kensington’s trendy bars and enter a world of pushcarts and pamphlets, bagels and bushel baskets, delicatessens and clothing outlets, when Kensington was home to a vibrant, bustling Jewish community and Spadina Avenue was its “cosmic spine.” We’ll walk through time, recapturing what novelist Matt Cohen called “an infinity of delectable possibilities, an adolescent theme park throbbing with folk music… protest marches, idealists of all ages…” as Kensington’s Jewish community connected with the broader city and gave way to new waves of immigrants and new countercultures.
