Mantle for a mensch


Join us in raising
funds to sponsor a Torah mantle in memory of Gidi Nahshon z”l.

Gidi was a mentor,
scholar, teacher and devoted friend to many of us. He was a “Gadol” (spiritual
pillar) in our community.  He touched our
hearts, fed our minds, and left this
world far too soon.

 Sponsorship of a
Torah mantle costs $10,000, with proceeds going to both the Torah Fund and
General Operating Fund at the synagogue. Inspiring and distinctive new mantles
have been designed by Phyllis Serota. They will be unveiled in a special
Shabbat dedication ceremony on Saturday, March 19.  It would be only fitting if we could have one
Torah mantle in Gidi’s name.

If you can assist
us in this endeavour, please call the synagogue office at 250 382 0615 to
donate.  For more information or any
questions, please contact Aaron at or
Rabbi Harry at

All contributions
– large or small – are most welcome.

Todahrabah for
your generosity
