Thanks to the ongoing generosity of the David & Issi Moses families, we are happy to announce the
establishment of the Sally Moses Scholarship fund for Sfardi studies, in honor of their mother Sally,
who passed away this past year.
The Moses family are no strangers to philanthropic causes for our Shul. They have previously
donated the Yahrzeit board which hangs in the Main Shul and have helped with the building of the
Sfardi minyan room. Not to forget their generosity in helping endow the Shul when we were behind
the beer store.
This particular cause is very special, as it will be awarded yearly to a high school graduate, who has
shown promise, and wishes to grow in their Judaism by spending a year in a Yeshiva or Seminary in
Eretz Yisrael. With the yearly commitment from the Moses family, we have the resources to help
ensure the continuity of the Sfardi community in Toronto.
We encourage everyone to consider donating towards this fund in order to enable us to send as
many graduates as possible every year. We are pleased that the award for 5782 is going to Raviv Talkar, who has chosen to spend a second year in the Ohr Samayech “Derech” program in Jerusalem. Mazel Tov to his parents Shlomo & Esther. We hope to send you updates from Raviv during the course of the year. May Sally Moses have an Aliyas Neshama from Raviv’s Torah study and spiritual growth. Amen.
