Last week, over 200 community members gathered at Westmount Collegiate Institute for a Jewish Fun Fair and Meet and Greet.
The intent of the event was to come together as a community to foster cultural understanding and to celebrate the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot that take place in September.
Attendees at the event took part in activities geared towards learning about Jewish traditions, customs and practices. Some of the activities included traditional dancing, holiday-related artwork, games, challah braiding, shofar making and many more!
“Great event, as a parent I was so happy to see the YRDSB involvement and participation in celebrating Jewish culture,” said a parent attendee. “We'd love to see this happening each year. We met other families, and made connections, and got a chance to meet some of the YRDSB trustees to which was great. Thanks again for such a lovely event.”
