Sisterhood

Bringing women together at the Shaar

In the spirit of Tikun Olam, members work together to fulfill our philanthropic mission. Our cherished volunteers collaborate to create programs that serve to enrich the lives of members and provide financial support to those in need.
 
Co-Presidents:  Enid Backman and Oro Anahory-Librowicz
 

Meals on Wheels


 
The Meals on Wheels mission is to cook and deliver hot kosher meals to the senior community in Montreal. Volunteers cook under the supervision of a professional nutritionist inside the Shaar’s specially designed meals-on-wheels kitchen.
Established in 1972, Shaar Hashomayim became – and remains – the first and only synagogue in Montreal to sponsor this program. 4,000 meals are delivered annually, giving many frail seniors the opportunity to eat nutritiously in the comfort and security of their home.
 
We need your help!
Volunteers are need for just a few hours on either Monday and/or Thursday mornings for cooking, packing and/or delivering meals. Sign-up today and show your support.
