Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto

 !ברוכים הבאים   

Welcome to the virtual home of the Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto, commonly referred to as the BAYT!

BAYT means “home” in Hebrew, and when you come to the BAYT, you truly are coming home. We are an integral part of the Thornhill Jewish community, providing a warm and traditional synagogue and community centre for all.    As the Rav, it’s my honour to personally welcome you, not just to this website, but into our community. 

The BAYT is an extremely active congregation, with programs, shiurim, and activities operating around the calendar and around the clock. We proudly represent a broad spectrum of Orthodoxy, and because we view each other as family, we all get along under this amazingly large and accepting “tent”. 

In addition to multiple daily minyanim and learning opportunities, we are also a centre for adult and youth education and programming, social activities, and special events. We have an active Brotherhood and Sisterhood, both of whom round out the BAYT’s services and programs. In addition, our shul is politically active in supporting both Canada and Israel. We pride ourselves in being a strongly Zionist congregation with one of the highest rates of aliyah in North America.

If you are blessed to be planning a simcha, our on-site caterer, Jacobs Catering, is recognized as one of the leading kosher caterers serving the wider Toronto Jewish population, facilitating simchas of all sizes in various venues throughout the building.

Please browse this site as it will give you an opportunity to understand the full scope of the BAYT community. In addition, visit us on Facebook!

Come join our thriving congregation. For more information, contact our Executive Director, Mordechai Bookbinder or our office manager in charge of membership, Leslie Lewis.

I look forward to seeing you in shul! Please introduce yourself to me if you are new or visiting. In the meantime, please enjoy the website, and feel free to reach me on my personal and confidential phone line at 905-886-3810 x 125.

Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin
