Fri, July 22
@Bickford Park (map)
Free – donations greatly appreciated!
Gather in the great outdoors (of downtown TO) to wind down from the week and welcome Shabbat with soulful and song-filled services, followed by a picnic Shabbat dinner!
Brought to you by Makom & Annex Shul
B.Y.O. Dinner, Plate, Utensils, Napkin, Water bottle, Blanket, etc.
We’ll provide grape juice for kiddush & rolls for ha-motzi.
OPTIONAL items to bring:
- Siddur/prayer book; we’ll have photocopies of services in Hebrew & phonetic transliteration available
- Kippah/head covering (if you wear one during services)
We’ll have separate sections for women’s, men’s, and mixed (all genders) seating. Since we’ll be outdoors and not in a regular prayer space, there won’t be curtains between these sections.
Children are welcome and must be registered as well.
Please note that washrooms should be open, based on information from the Parks Department, but cannot be guaranteed.
In the event of rain, services will be held indoors at Makom (402 College) with masking required; picnic will be cancelled.Social tagging: Downtown Jewish Community > Downtown Jewish Toronto > Shabbat
