    In the wake of the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal, Federations are collecting funds for emerging relief efforts. Amid a quickly rising death toll and widespread destruction in Kathmandu and the surrounding region, our partners are assessing the unfolding situation on the ground and ensure survivor’s immediate needs are addressed. Please note that funds raised will be matched by the Canadian Government.

  • NCSY Centre Fire Relief Fund

    On the night of May 26, the NCSY Centre in Centrepointe Plaza, where Torah High classes take place, was broken into, electronics were stolen, and as part of the vandalism, a fire was set, and fortunately, nobody was injured or present at the time. Sadly, most of the contents in the centre are destroyed and the facility will be out of use for the foreseeable future. Please support our teens. 100% of donations will be directed to NCSY.
