Annex Shul is a vibrant and inclusive Jewish community for young professionals and their children, located in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood. We are a non-denominational, independent minyan, and we encourage everyone in our community to play an active role in our davening and programs.
Our motto Come as you are, make it yours exemplifies our approach to building community. There is truly something for everyone at Annex Shul, and we encourage you to get involved in a manner that is meaningful to you, because only then can we continue to grow as a community. Help us dream and re-envision our community as we grow and expand.
At Annex Shul, we daven, learn, and share meals together. We volunteer together. We party together. Tov l’hodot l’hashem – with thanks to God, together we celebrate milestones and mourn losses – small and great. As a group we grapple with questions and dilemmas particular to the Jewish community here and around the world.
We offer lively and participatory Carlebach-style services, discussion-based learning opportunities, social gatherings (such as our ever popular Shabbat dinners and holiday parties), Tikkun Olam projects, and leadership development opportunities.
Although the majority of Annex Shul participants are young professionals, all are welcome, regardless of age or affiliation, and we make a point of ensuring that all our religious services and classes are financially accessible to all.
