The Temmy Latner Forest Hill Jewish Centre (FHJC) aims to reach out to our neighbourhood youth. In addition to those that attend Jewish schools and public schools, there are a large number of Jewish young adults who attend non-Jewish private schools. Our vision is to spearhead a comprehensive project which will impact this third category of students. Our vision is to import Jewish clubs and activities into their school routine. By hiring a husband and wife team whose passion is to educate Jewish youth, the FHJC will create Jewish clubs and programs such as Holocaust Remembrance Day that are uniquely suited for private school students. This couple will create a long term bond with these students that will last beyond the high school experience. In addition, they will connect these teens with other like-minded private school Jewish students across the GTA.
The FHJC has a strong tween and teen program which has successfully reached many local private school students. Although the program is highly successful, we need a team to devote their energies exclusively to this cause so that we can expand to the private school campuses.
