jewish holiday assistance

Celebrating and observing the many Jewish holidays can be financially challenging - especially for low-income members of our community.


Here are a few of the ways we can help our community carry on traditions and add spirituality to their lives:
Clients can access High Holiday tickets to a number of synagogues across the GTA. 
All children and youth in foster care are able to celebrate and dine in a traditional sukkah.
Foster parents and youth in care attend an annual Chanukah party. Gift cards and toys are donated to JF&CS through our annual Drive for Dreidels to ensure that all children and teens connected to JF&CS can receive at least one Chanukah gift.
JF&CS community partners deliver Mishloach Manot packages to JF&CS to distribute to clients in need.

  • JF&CS covers the cost for clients to attend community Seders. Children and youth in care are able to attend a special Seder for them, thanks to the support of a generous donor. 

  • As a major recipient of the Passover Food Drive, we are able to distribute hundreds of Kosher Passover food boxes to our clients every year. 

  • We also provide a small amount of direct financial support to help our clients supplement their holiday needs.    

If you wish to support these efforts, please contact our donation line at 416-638-7800, ext. 6999.


If you are someone in need who wishes to access any of these spiritual supports, please contact our Intake line at 416-638-7800, ext. 6234.
