Kulanu Canada was established in 2014 to support and assist Jewish communities that are isolated, new or re-emerging, and to educate Canadians about these communities and the diversity of the Jewish people. Assistance may be in the form of funding, Judaica and ritual supplies, expert consulting.
Kulanu Canada operates with a small volunteer board of directors. Members are individuals whose interests and commitments are based on both love of Judaism and a range of experiences with overseas Jewish communities. (Link the words in bold to the page with board members info)
Kulanu Canada is officially registered as the Canadian Friends of Kulanu Inc, thus engaging in activities and sharing information from our American counterpart which has decades of experience and great expertise. We welcome their assistance and we direct our Canadian readers to www.kulanu.org for information and volunteer opportunities.
