A Canadian Reform congregation that honours and sanctifies each and every person, integrating a deep sense of Jewish tradition with contemporary life.

Take part in our machzor project!

Choosing new High Holy Day prayer books for the congregation is something that Temple Sholom undertakes once every 30 to 40 years. Our current campaign to bring the new Reform machzor, Mishkan NaNefesh, to our community is an invitation to take part in the mitzvah of sponsoring and dedicating a prayer book.

As Rabbi Moskovitz and Rabbi Brown share in this short video above, every prayer book tells a story. Each two-volume set of Mishkan HaNefesh that you purchase can be dedicated with a commemorative bookplate, on which you can honour a loved one or cherished occasion. It’s a meaningful, enduring way to build connection between those that came before, and those who will come after us.

When we launched this campaign, our goal was to obtain a copy for every member of the congregation. Thanks to the generous support of the project so far, we now have the funds in place to do this.

You can still participate in this important community initiative by ordering and dedicating a prayer book. All additional funds raised from the campaign will be invested in Temple Sholom’s many programs and services.
