Why We Exist

The Yorkville Jewish Centre was founded in September 2016 and is located at 94 Avenue Road. The mission of The Y.J.C. is to be the centre for all things Jewish for the current residents of Yorkville and the thousands more expected to move into the neighbourhood over the next few years. This is primarily achieved through Shabbat and Holiday services, Shabbat dinners, prayer services, weekly classes, social events, women’s groups, and much more. In addition, we are establishing ourselves as Toronto’s premier organization for Young Jewish professionals, through offering a non-judgmental, non-pressured, welcoming environment where they can come network at a business event, mingle at a Shabbat dinner, maybe make a great business connection, or better yet, meet their future husband or wife.
