or Steeles Memorial Chapel to begin the funeral process.

We respect your privacy

With your consent only, we will send out a bereavement e-notice upon the passing of a loved one,
and mention funeral details in our printed bulletin, to allow congregants to offer their sympathies
and attend services for the deceased.

Beth Torah’s clergy is here to offer support and solace, attend shivas, as well as send out condolences
and end-of-shloshim letters. We also record yahrzeits and acknowledge them with a letter to member
families every year.

Beth Torah’s Chesed Committee is also available should you need assistance. 

Honour a loved one

There are many beautiful ways to commemorate a loved one and signal one’s abiding love and respect for the life
they led and the legacy they left behind. These include purchasing yahrzeit plaques, seat plaques, leaves on our
Tree of Life, and other memorials within the shul.
