Communal Involvement

Food Drive and High Holy Day Tickets

TBR runs an annual High Holy Day food drive. We also assist in the distribution of High Holy Day tickets to needy individuals through the network of our synagogues.

Organ Donation

TBR urges the members of the Jewish community to participate in the mitzvah of pikuach nefesh (saving a life) by becoming organ donors. The members of TBR are proud supporters of  the Trillium Gift of Life Network. You can also download our organ donor brochure.

Radio & Television

The members of the Toronto Board of Rabbis are all ordained from recognized rabbinic seminaries from throughout the Jewish world. This peer recognition maintains the highest level of rabbinic professionalism and responsibility. It also insures that rabbis chosen to represent the community are of the highest educational caliber. For this reason, the members of the Toronto Board of Rabbis can be seen and heard on radio, television and their writings are frequently seen in newspapers and magazines. If you need a rabbi for a media appearance please contact our executive director at

Rabbinic Services to the Community 

A number of our members are available for rabbinic services such as weddings and funerals. We can provide information and referrals to conversion programs. We are also available to answers  questions about Jewish beliefs and practices, and provide general information about Judaism.

Jewish Communal Network

The Toronto Board of Rabbis is a beneficiary agency of UJA-Federation of Toronto, and our members serve on committees, helping to shape policies of that organization. TBR has been involved in communal efforts to address inclusion, and tackle poverty within our community.
