Day of Giving

The cornerstone of any Jewish community (other than having an awesome Judaica shop! 😜) is the ability to give a strong foundation for Jewish life to the next generation. And in Toronto, we are blessed to have world-class institutions for Jewish education, ranging across the spectrum of philosophical and cultural backgrounds.

This education that our next generation is blessed to receive, however, costs money - especially this year, with extra procedures and systems in place to battle the ongoing COVID pandemic, adding costs that just months ago would have been unfathomable. And yet, the schools persevere, determined to instil these foundations during these critical years of development.

But without government funding, these institutions are often lacking for funding, and that’s why today’s “day of giving” provides such an amazing opportunity - for 24 hours, 3 generous donors will *each* provide matching donations to any pledges made in support of our community schools, meaning that your contributions get *quadrupled*!

Don’t miss out on this chance to make a difference in the future of Toronto’s Jewish education, and to help secure the future of Toronto’s Jewish community. Visit raisedays.com/dayofgiving and give as generously as you can.

A day of giving to help strengthen & sustain our Jewish day schools Every gift will be generously matched up to 4X the original value. That

One of the highlights of Sukkot each year is the guests, whether it’s family, friends, or the seven holy guests of the Ushpizin.

This year, with COVID-19 upon us, our ability to invite guests to share this lovely holiday with us in our sukkot will be diminished. But there is one guest that will try to show up, invited or not - the pesky Yellow Jacket wasp.

#Wasp #Bee #Wasps #Bees #Sukkot #Succot #Jewish #JewishHolidays #Sukkah #YellowJacket #WaspTrap #BeeTrap #Sting #JewishCanada #JewishToronto #JewishInThe6ix

The Israeli Source is pleased to offer a selection of top-reviewed wasp traps, but remember that many traps need to be set out at least a few weeks in advance in order to be effective.

Contact us today to explore your options for minimizing those unwanted guests!

08/11/2020

I’ve been selling kosher cookbooks for 20 years now, and I’ve never seen such hype surrounding the prerelease of any cookbook as I’ve seen for Peas Love & Carrots . Couldn’t figure out why I had an inordinate amount of emails and phone calls, as much as 10 weeks before the release date, from customers who all wanted to make sure they were at the top of the list to receive a copy.

Now I understand.

As a guy who loves to spend time in the kitchen, I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that this is most impressive kosher cookbook I’ve seen. This one will take a spot of distinction on my shelf, next to my Larousse. Because, with all of the incredible tips tricks that Danielle Renov offers, that is what this is - nothing short of an encyclopaedic tome of culinary arts. (The fact is kosher is an added bonus, but I cannot imagine anyone who takes cooking seriously not being seriously impressed by this masterpiece.)

Now available at The Israeli Source, get your copy while stock remains!
