Inclusive Synagogues Working Group

The Inclusive Synagogues Working Group is supported by ITANU and meets bi-monthly to advance inclusion in Toronto synagogues. We are lay leaders from synagogue inclusion committees, along with clergy.  Learning from each other and seeking best practice models, we seek to remove barriers in our facilities, our services, our programs and to develop inclusive rituals, programs, and education.  We look at synagogue life through the lens of inclusion and actively work to make our shared vision a reality. We raise awareness through Shabbat ITANU and beyond. All synagogues are welcome to join. Please contact for information.
