If you aren't already familiar with JF&CS Emerging Leaders,  it was established in 2014 by a group of young professionals in their 20s and 30s. The members of this dynamic group have varying professions and backgrounds but all share a passion for making a difference in the Jewish community through the work of Jewish Family & Child.
A few weeks ago, several members of the committee volunteered with the Out of the Cold program at Beth Shalom Synagogue.  They hosted a bingo night and many of the guests who played won gift cards.  It was a meaningful opportunity to interact with the guests and spend some time getting to know them. In addition to playing bingo, guests also received food and clothing, were treated to a live band, participated in a paint night and some slept over at the shul.

Next up for Emerging Leaders - Their 3rd Annual Cringe Worthy event at The Opera House on May 25th.  If you haven't been to Cringe Worthy before, you're missing out on one of the funniest nights you'll ever experience.  Tickets go on sale this Monday, April 3.


To be Jewish is to be part of a family. Wherever we go in the world, we remain connected. JF&CS invites you to a very special evening to celebrate that connection, to meet as a community and focus on our children. Specifically, we want to share the stories of those young people who have grown up in foster care in our community. We want to share their successes and explain their challenges. Join us in making a profound difference in their lives, and very likely in your own.  Visit to learn more and RSVP.



Are you looking for a meaningful career?  Is it important to you that the work you do every day supports the most vulnerable members of the community?  Why not consider a career with JF&CS? We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package including dental, vision, and health coverage, a health care spending account, and a defined benefit pension plan. We also offer ample vacation and sick days and are closed on most Jewish and all statutory holidays. Our Central Branch is located in a beautiful ravine setting near Bathurst and Sheppard in Toronto and offers free parking, a daycare facility, and a fitness centre (with subsidized membership for our employees). Bookmark our page and stay connected with us on Facebook and LinkedIn for up-to-date job postings.

Woman abuse exists in the Jewish community.

Taking you back to memories of singing by a campfire, this very special acoustic concert features songs you know and love along with some acoustic twists on a few you might not expect!  With amazing talent, new arrangements and stunning harmonies, you won’t be able to resist singing along. Best of all, all proceeds from this show will help send kids to summer camp that otherwise couldn’t afford to go.  In 2014 Unsung Heroes raised over $30,000 for JF&CS which helped 30 children to camp - a place for them to gain skills, friendships, and new experiences.  It also gives single parents, who often have to say no due to financial constraints, a chance to say yes along with getting some much-needed reprieve.  

Join us April 7-9 at the Toronto Centre for the  Arts and get ready to be transported into a world of great music, camp fires, good friends, and amazing voices.
