“We couldn’t imagine raising
our family anywhere else.”
“We moved to Vancouver from Israel in 2016, and we LOVE the community here. Our daughters have such a strong sense of belonging, and love being part of a diverse and warm community. We couldn’t imagine raising our family anywhere else.”
Shloimy and Rachel Gabay
Making the move just got easier.
Joining a new community just got easier.
Starting a new life in a new city can be challenging. Joining a new Orthodox community can be even more confusing. We understand that. For some, it means starting from scratch making new friends, choosing new schools, finding a job, joining a shul, getting a driver’s license, or even finding that unique chalav Yisrael kosher pizza.
Why Torah West?
