Rachael’s Centre is dedicated to building inclusive, ethically driven communities of learning. Through our courses, lectures, and online content, we strive to offer an experience of Jewish texts and wisdom, that exposes their benefit to the modern world. There are many ways to connect and grow with Rachael’s Centre; we look forward to connecting with you.

We invite you to come meet us and get to know our community!

Upcoming Courses

Adam and Eve only lived in Eden for a few hours but within that time they brought complex knowledge of good and evil into the world. Join our exploration of the Torah text as well as some of the rich midrashim that interpret it.

The Jewish school of Mussar is rooted in Torah and continues to grow today. It is our approach to Tikkun Olam as we learn how we empower ourselves through using our free will. 

Join us every week for half an hour of informal, Jewish sharing to frame your day. Rachael will always bring a text, legend, or moment of Jewish humour to spark our free-form discussion.
Bring your favourite coffee brew in your special mug and let’s get together.

* Except Jewish Chaggim and Canadian Civic Holidays

We are expanding our online offerings  so you can join us from  your own home, as we all help everyone stay safe. Play a meaningful part in helping us offer these programs  to others at home and around the world, by making a donation to Rachael’s Centre for Torah, Mussar & Ethics. 

Please show your support with a financial gift and keep our inclusive online community growing chazak v’chazak, from strength to strength. Thank you!
