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

A New Machzor for the High Holy Days

This year during Rosh Hashanah Morning services we introduce the New Reform Machzor – MISHKAN HANEFESH. We will also begin a campaign to purchase the beautiful two volume set for every member of our congregation.

When you purchase the new Machzor for your family, and the congregation at large, you will have an opportunity to sponsor personalized bookplates with the option to remember a loved one, celebrate a lifecycle occasion, honour clergy, family and friends. These bookplates are beautifully designed and will be placed in each of the volumes of our new High Holy Day Prayer book for 5779.

Help Temple Sholom purchase our new Machzor.  Place your order here or call the office at 604.266.7190
