Chanukah demands that we overwhelm the darkness in our midst with Macabean light. We welcome a modern day Macabbee, Nili Kaplan Myrth, to share some of her experiences as a physician and new OCDSB trustee encountering the challenges in our time.
All programs hosted at Temple Israel, 1301 Prince of Wales Drive (except the cooking demo). Masking required for indoor programs. Programs will be livestreamed on Facebook (except the Israeli Movie Afternoon) but we encourage you to come in person. Please register online.
