Scotch Whiskey Tasting

Purim is a time for rejoicing. A playful holiday, which is usually focussed on our children. But sometimes adults deserve our own celebrations.

In conjunction with Temple’s traditional Purim Party, we are holding our second annual Scotch Whiskey Tasting.

Those interested in this curated tasting, led by Temple member, Rick Garber, will sample an assortment of whiskeys, exploring the variety of flavours and styles from across Scotland: the Lowlands, Highlands, Speyside, Islay and more!

Dress up in your Purim best / wear your kilt (yes, kosher Jewish kilts are marketed in Scotland), and enjoy imbibing. Light snacks will accompany the beverages.

Age 19 and over please and consider a designated driver as we will be consuming between 2 and 3 ounces of alcohol.


Please RSVP to the office by phone 613-224-1802 or email to before March 1 to give us an idea how many we should expect.
