Out of the Cold 2017

The Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda Synagogue opens its doors during the cold winter months for the vulnerable people in our community. We serve dinners for up to 90 guests and have up to 30 guests sleep over each Monday evening. The Out of the Cold Program depends on the support of all of us.

With your help, we just completed our 16th successful year running the Out of the Cold program at Beth Emeth.  Cash donations and clothing donations are however, needed all year long.  If you would like to donate warm winter clothing to the program, please Download the Intake Form and  attach to the clothing bags. Donations to Out of the Cold can be made by calling the office or click the link to the right, and select Out of the Cold.

If you wish to volunteer, please send a note with your contact info including name, email and phone numbers to Even if you have volunteered in previous years - please re-submit your contact info!

We look forward to your participation.


Allan Fleisher and Lindsay Henry.


The Out of the Cold program extends it's gratitude to Mazon Canada, for their generous donation in support of the Out of the Cold program at Beth Emeth.


Out of the Cold 2016

Thanks to your involvement this year has been an overwhelming success!

Our Out-Of-The-Cold Program has just completed another successful year of service. For 8 Mondays commencing January 4/2016, a large group of tireless volunteers provided, food, shelter, clothing, and toiletries to members of the community who are homeless or socially isolated. Our program is the huge success that it is because of the large number of volunteers who help out “behind the scenes” as well as on the days the guests come to our Synagogue.

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out this year, there are far too many to name, for your dedication and support. The guests appreciate all that we do to make their day a little brighter.

Special thanks to our corporate donors for their very generous contributions to this years program;
